Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp Sunday to pay tribute to the millions who were massacred during the Holocaust.
The Prime Minister was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion, International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland, Canadian Holocaust Survivor and past president of the Canadian Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Descendants (CJHSD) Nate Leipciger and Rabbi Adam Scheier of Montreal.
“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau signifies the importance of remembering the six million Jews and countless others who died at hands of the Nazi regime,” said Michael Mostyn, CEO, B’nai Brith Canada.
“The Holocaust will forever stand as the ultimate expression of human hatred. That is why every Canadian should use this as an opportunity to reflect upon their personal role in combating the forces of antisemitism, racism and bigotry wherever they are found.”
