According to the president, he himself learned about the Holocaust from his father, whose story made a deep impression on him; subsequently, Biden took his children to Dachau in order to clearly explain to them the essence of these tragic events. “We must pass on the history of the Holocaust to our grandchildren and their grandchildren in order to keep our promise: never again. This is how we prevent genocide in the future, ”he said..
“The horror that took place in Charlottesville in 2017, when white nationalists and neo-Nazis spewed the same anti-Semitic bile that we heard in 1930s Europe, is the reason why I ran for president. Today I reaffirm the simple truth that preventing genocide in the future remains our moral duty and a matter of national and global concern. “.
“The Holocaust was not a historical accident. This is because too many governments have cold-bloodedly adopted and implemented hateful laws, policies and practices to vilify and dehumanize entire groups of people, and too many people have stood silently on the sidelines. Silence is complicity, “Biden emphasized..
“When hatred is uncontrolled and when the system of checks and balances protecting fundamental freedoms in the state and in society is lost, this can lead to violence and mass atrocities. The United States will continue to pursue justice for Holocaust survivors and their heirs. We are committed to creating a world in which the lessons of the Holocaust are taught and in which the lives of all people are valued, ”the President summed up.
