International Task Force Expresses Condolences on Death of Simon Wiesenthal
September 20, 2005
The Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research, comprising government representatives and NGOs from more than 20 countries, expresses its deepest condolences on the passing of Simon Wiesenthal.
A survivor of the Holocaust, Mr. Wiesenthal dedicated his life to raising the awareness of the public and their governments on the importance of prosecuting Nazi criminals and ensuring that justice is dispensed on behalf of the victims of the Holocaust. His contribution to Holocaust education, remembrance, and research is inestimable.
Mr. Wiesenthal’s efforts to preserve the memory of Holocaust victims and to educate future generations about the consequences of racism and antisemitism shall remain a constant inspiration for individuals and organisations committed to perpetuating the legacy of the Holocaust.
