DefMin Vasile Dincu pays tribute to Holocaust victims in Jerusalem

Published on

On an official visit to Israel, Romania’s Defence Minister Vasile Dincu on Friday laid a wreath and visited the Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem, according to the Romanian Defence Ministry (MApN), according to Agerpres.

„Both at the level of state institutions and at individual level, we have the responsibility to act so that the horrors of the Holocaust will never be forgotten and will never be possible again,” MApN quotes Dincu as saying in a conversation with specialists at the Yad Vashem Memorial.

Dincu added that he encourages „active and systematic” measures to prevent, combat and penalise radicalisation and hate speech, as well as any forms of denial and distortion of the Holocaust, anti-Semitic and xenophobic manifestations and all forms of intolerance.

At the Holocaust Museum, the Romanian dignitary participated in the official ceremony of lighting the Eternal Flame, laid a wreath in the Hall of Remembrance, then visited the Children’s Memorial and signed the book of guests.

In his message, the minister mentioned Romania’s constant commitment to condemning anti-Semitism, accepting the past and condemning the denial of the Holocaust, highlighting, at the same time, that responsibility for recent history is mandatory, so that the tragedy of the Holocaust victims is not repeated.
