Pope Francis condemns Holocaust denial

Pope Francis condemned Holocaust denial ahead of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

The pope spoke about Holocaust denial at the end of his weekly general audience at the Vatican.

“The remembrance of that extermination of millions of Jews and people of other faiths can neither be forgotten nor denied,” he said.

“There can be no constant commitment to building fraternity together without first eliminating the roots of hatred and violence that fuelled the horror of the Holocaust,” he said.
