UN General Assembly adopts resolution condemning Holocaust denial

The UN General Assembly adopted on Thursday by consensus a resolution on action against denial of the Holocaust, Trend reports citing TASS.

According to the resolution, the remembrance of the Holocaust "is a key component of the prevention of further acts of genocide," while "ignoring the historical facts of those terrible events increases the risk that they will be repeated".

The document honors "the courage and dedication shown by the soldiers who liberated Nazi concentration and extermination camps, and those who fought against the Nazis, including in the resistance movements."

The General Assembly "rejects and condemns without any reservation any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part," it said. It "urges all Member States to reject without any reservation any denial or distortion of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, or any activities to this end," the resolution said.
