הודעת משלחת האיחוד האירופי לישראל לרגל יום השואה (אנגלית)
The European Union Delegation issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission in Israel:
The EU Delegation to the State of Israel, together with all Embassies of EU Member States in Israel, joins people in Israel commemorating today the victims of the Shoah and the heroes of resistance. We mourn the deaths of six million Jews and millions of other victims. Innocent men, women and children were murdered by the Nazis and their accomplices, simply for being Jewish. Honoring their memory means for us to stand strong against anti-semitism, prejudice and racial discrimination in all their forms and wherever they occur. This we owe to those who suffered in the Shoah, to those who courageously resisted the Nazis and their collaborators and to ourselves as human beings, as European nations and as a Union, that was built on the values of human dignity and human rights, of freedom, democracy and peace after the tragedies of two world wars and the Shoah. In this spirit, the European Union has on many occasions reiterated its fundamental commitment to the security of Israel. Never forget. Never again.
