Pedro Agramunt: “A date to remember the victims of former horrors, but also the victims of tomorrow”

“Today is a date to remember not only the victims of former horrors, those that were abandoned, but also the victims of today and tomorrow”, PACE President Pedro Agramunt said addressing in Strasbourg the Ceremony to mark the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.

“Genocide starts with the killing of one man, woman or child because of who they are, not for what they have done. We haven’t to forget that what begins with the failure to endorse the dignity of the individual, all too often ends in tragedy. We have to be willing to speak out against atrocities, no matter where they take place, and no matter who are the victims”, Mr Agramunt concluded.
