The Paris Memorial to the Unknown Jewish Martyr Wednesday celebrated its 25th anniversary. The memorial contains the tomb of an unknown Jewish martyr and also houses one of the world’s largest collections of archives and historic documents covering the Nazi era and World War II. European Parliament chairman, Simone Veil, herself a survivor of Auschwitz, called for a continuation of historic research on the Nazi period and the Holocaust to provide “evidence to counter madmen’s claims that the concentration camps had never existed.”
