U.N. to mark Holocaust today

Monday, January 24, 2005 | 
The UN General Assembly is holding a historic session today to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the largest Nazi death camp where at least 1 million Jews were murdered during World War II. "The evil that destroyed 6 million Jews, and others, in those camps is one that still threatens all of us today," UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said before the event. "It is not something we can consign to the distant past and forget about it." Israel has hailed the session as a milestone. Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom is bringing photos and sketches from Auschwitz, in an exhibit called "The Depth of the Abyss."
