The President of the Republic: 'The Constitution says 'never again racist Italy'. Auschwitz was born on lethal toxins and brutal instincts'. Meloni: 'The Shoah was the abyss of humanity'. Berlusconi: 'It is not enough to remember, to defend Israel' - THE SPECIAL (ANSA)

"The memory of the extermination of millions of Jewish people and of other faiths can neither be forgotten nor denied. There can be no fraternity without first having dispelled the roots of hatred and violence that fueled the horror of the Holocaust. #HolocaustRemembranceDay" .

This was stated by

Pope Francis

in a tweet on the occasion of Remembrance Day.

The commemoration with Mattarella took place at the Quirinale


"The principles that inform our republican Constitution and the Charter of Universal Human Rights are the radical negation of the universe that led to Auschwitz. Principles that today, unfortunately, we see threatened in the world by bloody wars of aggression, by narrow-minded repression and summary executions, by the worrying re-emergence - fueled by the distorted use of social media - of anti-Semitism, intolerance, racism and denialism, which is the most subtle and insidious form of racism. ,

Remembrance Day, Mattarella: 'Auschwitz was born of lethal toxins and brutal instincts'

"We cannot forget - recalling the Italian deportees - the suffering suffered by our soldiers - says Mattarella -, interned in German prison camps, after refusing to join the ranks of the Republic of Salò, an ally and accomplice of the Nazi occupier. There were 650,000 Their no represented an act of extreme courage, of moral redemption, of resistance".

"The Auschwitz system and the camps connected to it were the extreme, but direct and ineluctable, consequence of anti-historical and anti-scientific impulses, brutal instincts, prejudices, pernicious doctrines and petty interests, and even fashion conformisms. Lethal toxins - racism, aggressive nationalism, authoritarianism, worship of the leader, deification of the state - which circulated, since the early years of the last century, from universities to living rooms, even among artists and teachers, poisoning peoples, clouding minds, making hearts and feelings dry". 

"The fascist regime, in 1938, with the racial laws - added Mattarella - acted cruelly against a part of our people. It is of great significance that the Constitution wanted to sanction, in article 3, the equal dignity and equality of all citizens, even with the expression "without distinction of race". Some have opined that it may appear an involuntary terminological concession to implicitly racist theses. The Constituents believed, on the contrary, that it manifested, unequivocally, the distance that separated the new Italy from the racist one. To repeat never again". 

"The Shoah represents the abyss of humanity. An evil that has also deeply touched our nation with the infamy of the racial laws of 1938. It is our duty to ensure that the memory of those events and what happened not be reduced to a mere exercise in style".

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni

writes it

in a message on the occasion of Remembrance Day.

"It is not enough to remember, as we do today, on the International Day of Remembrance: there is no point in mourning the Jews killed if you are not on the side of the living, of the Jewish communities which even today are often victims of dangerous acts of anti-Semitism. But above all it is not just remember if you don't defend the State of Israel, which is a great democracy friend of Italy, it is the State of the Jews, which welcomed the survivors of the holocaust, and is the guarantee that nothing like this will ever happen again in the future ".

Silvio Berlusconi
