Romania’s president deplored the lack of Holocaust awareness in his country. “We have a long war ahead,” Traian Basescu said Monday at the third annual Holocaust commemorations in Bucharest. “Finding out the reality did not solve the problem of national conscience regarding the crimes committed by state authorities.” Romania allied itself with Nazi Germany in 1940 and oversaw the killing of as many as 380,000 Jews during World War II.
