Horrors of the past must not be repeated, says Pope on Remembrance Day

Pope Benedict XVI has called for efforts to overcome all forms of hatred and racism.

In a message to mark the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Pope said: "The memory of this enormous tragedy that so severely struck mainly the Jewish people should represent for all a constant warning so that the horrors of the past are not repeated, so that every form of hatred and racism is overcome, and so that the respect and dignity of the human person is promoted."
