26 January 2020 | 2020 International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Tomorrow it is 75 years since extermination camp Auschwitz - Birkenau was liberated. I visited the site before the European elections last year, because it carries an immense message to us for the future and for our work for a stronger European Union.
Seeing what happened in Auschwitz - Birkenau left me speechless, and emphasized once more the importance to remember the darkest page of our history, and say "Never again!".
In our fight against anti-semitism, I have among others proposed that every high school student visits a camp like Auschwitz - Birkenau during their schoolyears. Only through education and dialogue we can beat anti-semitism.
