Secretary-General's Message on the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust [scroll down for French version]

Yet decades since the Second World War, we see the persistence of anti-Semitism and an increase in other forms of prejudice. Neo-Nazis and white supremacy groups are among the main purveyors of extreme hatred. And too often, vile views are moving from the margins to the mainstream of societies and politics. We must stand together against the normalization of hate.
