Pope: ‘Never repeat unspeakable cruelty of Holocaust’

Pope Francis made that appeal at the end of the Wednesday General Audience, one day before the world dedicates a day to recalling the horrors of the Holocaust, also known as the Shoah. The International Holocaust Remembrance Day is held on the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp on 27 January 1945. The Pope said the world must remember the “extermination of millions of Jews, people of various nationalities and religious faiths.”
