A painful dialogue between these perspectives was reflected in the utterances of the who attended and the objections of those who stayed away.

In opening the ceremony, Israeli prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, set the tone.


He described Auschwitz as “an abyss” and Jerusalem as “a peak,” with the former representing “enslavement” and “death” and the latter epitomising “freedom” and “life.”

To give meaning to the lives of those murdered in the Holocaust, he linked their deaths to Israel’s founding just a few years later.

I thought you lads consider Stalin an anti-Semite these days?
He was - check out the Jewish Doctor's purge.

While the Soviets liberated Auschwitz in full view of the cameras, they were secretly filling another former Nazi camp, Majdanek,
with thousands of members of Poland’s wartime resistance movement.....

While memorial ceremonies serve as a reminder of a brutal period in history, the most fitting memorial of all would be to see an end to antisemitism, once and for all.

Sadly, the opposite appears to be the case. Since the beginning of the 21st century, we have witnessed a widespread resurgence of antisemitism around the world, a tidal spread that every
year increases in volume and virulence.

...And Ireland is not immune.
