World leaders stressed the importance of memory and the continued fight against anti-Semitism at a ceremony marking the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. “We face a re-emergence of anti-Semitism in Europe,” said Israeli President Moshe Katsav. But, he added, “the Jewish people survived destruction, suffering, exile, expulsions and the greatest tragedy — the Shoah. Despite it all, we have returned to our homeland and built a modern, developed, democratic state, which has ingathered the Jewish people from the four corners of the earth.”
