Switzerland urges respect for memory of Auschwitz

Swiss President Doris Leuthard has marked the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz saying the principles of humanity and respect should never be forgotten.

Leuthard added that Switzerland supported the preservation of the Nazi death camp in Poland as a memorial.

“Nazi barbarism left behind distress, despair, a devastated country and millions of innocent victims,” she said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Polish President Lech Kaczynski and ministers from many European countries are due to attend commemorative events at Auschwitz on Wednesday.
