U.S. Ambassador tackled Holocaust issue
Denisa Maruntoiu

“Of the six million Jews killed during the Holocaust, some 400,000 hailed from what is today part of Romania, or once was. Those who perpetrated this crime against humanity sought to destroy not only a large and vibrant Jewish population but also other minorities, including the Roma. Incredibly, there are still some people in the world and Romania today who deny this atrocity and who perpetuate anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and other forms of hate against minorities,” said yesterday U.S. Ambassador to Romania Nicholas Taubman, who together with the Deputy Director of the United States Department of State’s Office for Holocaust Issues, Elizabeth Nakian, attended the Combating Anti-Semitism and Remembering Holocaust roundtable organized at the Elie Wiesel National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania.
