60th Anniversary of the liberation of Concentration Camps 24.4.2005

Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize Laureate Elie Wiesel wondered at “the shameful indifference that surrounded the dark factories of death”, and told the special session of the General Assembly marking the sixtieth anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camps that, in those grim days, the victims were not only tortured and murdered by the enemy, but also by the world’s silence. And, “by the world’s silence”, I think he meant silence by European Countries, because the rest of the world was insignificant then.
