Justin Trudeau

May this monument remind us to always open our arms and our hearts to those in need and may it continue to reflect the true resilience of the human spirit as we pledge today to stay hopeful to never, ever forget.feedback

Nick Ashdown

The 5 million non-Jews killed in Holocaust – Slavs, Roma, gay people, priests, disabled, communists & anarchists, etc. – are often forgotten.feedback

David Sweet

If we are going to stamp out hatred of Jews, it is important to get history right.feedback

Tom Watson

[The event] is nothing to do with the official Labour Party conference. And if there was Holocaust denial there, these people have no right to be in the Labour party, and if they are they should be expelled.feedback

Tom Watson

Well, I wish we could drive out any anti-Semite from politics. But it's always been there on the fringes; if it ends up invading the Labour Party Conference space [and] the discussions I'm having with you on national TV, then that's obviously a bad thing.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

There are two different things: denying the Holocaust and denying responsibility.feedback

Miko Peled

This is about free speech, the freedom to criticise and to discuss every issue, whether it's the Holocaust: yes or no, Palestine, the liberation, the whole spectrum. There should be no limits on the discussion.feedback

Tom Watson

I'm sure these allegations from the fringe, which is nothing to do with the Labour party, will be investigated. It is disgusting to deny the Holocaust. These people are cranks, they have no role in the mainstream of politics and we certainly don't want them in the Labour party.feedback

Tom Watson

If we have got any evidence that Labour party members are denying the Holocaust, are using antisemitism in their politics, then there is no role for them.feedback

Gunter Demnig

Large numbers such as 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust are abstract, but now this was someone in their neighborhood. It is something concrete, they start to think and might say, This victim was as old as I am now.feedback

Ivan Pavlov

Mr. Wallenberg's historical importance gives us the right to know the truth, whatever it might be. Sooner or later we will get this truth, and they know that too.feedback

Sergei V. Churikov

Why do you think that some of the relatives would be glad to find out that their ancestor was in an internal prison for crimes against the state. Why don't you think about revenge that some people could do that?feedback

Leon Wieseltier - The Brookings Institution

The Holocaust museum, if it stands for anything, stands for the idea that we should always act against genocide and that there's something forever wrong and unsatisfying about the idea that we can do nothing to alleviate radical evil. This paper basically whitewashes the Obama administration's inaction on Syria and says that there's nothing we can do.feedback

Elliott Abrams - Council on Foreign Relations

I was on the board for – I think it was nine years. I did not see one single case in which there was political influence on a staff product.feedback

Orrin Hatch

Of all the monuments and symbols in our nation's capital, none has a more important message than the Holocaust museum. It would be a tragedy for that message to be even slightly diminished by partisan politics.feedback

Menachem Z. Rosensaft

It leaves the option of discussing the report internally, deciding whether or not to keep it pulled, deciding whether to repost it, or deciding to post or publish it but in a broader context together with other opinions.feedback

Marc Lynch

It's absolutely shocking that they would pull a report simply because their supporters didn't like the conclusions, which is the only way to interpret what they did.feedback

Nathan Fielder

We created a website and within the first three months we had sold almost a half million dollars in jackets. It was crazy because we didn't have the infrastructure to run a business, so I think the customer service is awful. It's been annoying for people because there's not a full-time person that does it. It kind of jumps around between different people to manage it. But all the profits go to the Vancouver Holocaust Education Center.feedback

Mark Meechan

Material of this kind goes to normalise the anti-Semitic views that frankly we thought we had seen the last of. The Holocaust is not a subject for jocular content.feedback

António Guterres - United Nations

I believe that the horror of the Holocaust should be such that anti-Semitism should now be dead forever.feedback

Gabriel Cis

The violence I've seen in the country, lately, is the kind of thing that lead to the Holocaust in the first place. I always knew there was hatred with the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists, but it's as if lately they feel they can get away with their hurtful beliefs.feedback

Gershom Gorenberg

The man who built his rhetoric around the Holocaust is willing to speak softly about anti-Semitism and revived Nazism.feedback

Marc Kushner

I have a different takeaway from my grandparents' experience in the war. It is our responsibility as the next generation to speak up against hate. [Sic] Antisemitism or otherwise.feedback

Jacob Schulder

When an out of touch with reality nominee hires an out of touch with reality campaign manager, who is also a son-in-law, you get the BS Jared wrote. The very first thing a responsible campaign manager should do, I'd think, and I mean the very first thing, would be to take away his father-in-law's Twitter account. Even Joseph Kushner would've had the street smarts to figure that one out while living on boiled potatoes in the forest.feedback

Donald J. Trump

There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E Lee. I'm sure in that group there were some bad ones.feedback

Jeremy Burton

Without speaking to the motive, I would say it is incredibly painful and frankly horrifying that we are seeing this series of events this summer, this disrespect of this sacred space.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

It was a beautiful story but discussing the horrors of the Holocaust with a child is never easy. How do you tell a 10-year-old that such extreme racism and inhumanity has taken place so recently? And how do you explain why atrocities are still committed against so many people all over the world?feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

Along with millions of others, I was so heartbroken this weekend. Yesterday on our way to camp, my daughter and I were reading the book for our mother-daughter book club. Part of the story involved the granddaughter of a WWII veteran learning more about her grandfather's service during the war and meeting a Holocaust survivor whom he had helped.feedback

Marty Walsh

Today and every day Boston stands up against hate. I'm saddened to see such a despicable action in this great city. Thankful to public and (Boston Police) for quick arrest of the person responsible for vandalizing Holocaust Memorial.feedback

William B. Evans

I'm grateful for the quick response and the community help which led to the swift arrest of the suspect responsible for the damage done to the Holocaust Memorial. Clearly, this type of behaviour will not be tolerated in our city. And, in light of the recent events and unrest in Charlottesville, it's sad to see a young person choose to engage in such senseless and shameful behaviour.feedback

Natalie Negrotti - Brother

It was an honor working with Hearts of Reality for the first time and realizing that the money we raised was going to a non profit founded by a holocaust survivor. It really taught me that no matter what happens in life to always give back especially to children who are in need. Putting a smile on a kids life is worth more than money can buy.feedback

Bernie Farber

For decades, he was the gasoline that fed Holocaust denial. He was Canada's most famous hatemonger, and he reveled in it.feedback

Deborah Lipstadt

On a strategic level, sometimes I wondered if the various trials did not create a modicum of sympathy for a man who deserved not sympathy but utter contempt.feedback

Deborah Lipstadt

The report, which became and remains a cornerstone of the Holocaust-denial movement, claimed that gas chambers were a scientific impossibility. Based on shoddy methodology, it was riddled with basic scientific errors, miscalculations and false claims.feedback

Deborah Lipstadt

Prior to the digital age, he was responsible for spreading these materials across Europe and the Americas. They became important resources for an array of neo-Nazi, white-supremacist and Holocaust-denying groups.feedback

Joan Salter

[It is] comforting to assume that civilisation is a one-way street, when in fact experience teaches us that it is but a thin veneer, very easily torn away. Germany yesterday could so easily become Britain tomorrow.feedback

Constantin Braila

I went through so much, so many troubles. My mother died, my brothers, my granddad. It was so upsetting, tormenting, sad. I was hungry, dirty, full of lice.feedback

Mala Tribich

But there are lessons to be learned, if only to show what racism and discrimination can lead to.feedback

Joan Salter

In recent times, we have seen the splintering of social cohesion, the growing willingness to express extreme views, the ability of some to act out their intolerance with violent acts, the lack of respect for those of different cultures. We live in dangerous times.feedback

Mala Tribich

People have been asking over the years, has the world learned anything from the Holocaust?' And we have to admit, not a lot.feedback

Karen Pollock

The discourse that we're dealing with today in politics and in the media is a huge challenge for us. We need the next generation to be the people who carry the baton.feedback

Peter Lantos

We are the last generation to bear witness. When we die, no one can say 'I was there' ... It's important for the centre to be more than a record and testimony of the past. It is also a stark and powerful reminder, and warning to a future generation [of] what can happen when xenophobia and intolerance can lead to genocide. The basic question is whether we should forget about these events altogether, draw a line under it and start a new life, or whether we should remember. As a survivor, I don't have any doubt that we should never forget what happened in Europe in the middle of the 20th century.feedback

Kevin Myers

Africa, with its vast savannahs and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS. There was no Holocaust and six million Jews were not murdered by the Third Reich. These two statements of mine are irrefutable truths, yet their utterance could get me thrown in the slammer in half the countries of the EU.feedback

Rotem Bides

I felt it was something I had to do. Millions of people were murdered based on the moral laws of a certain country, under a certain regime. And if these are the laws, I can go there and act according to my own laws. I am a third generation to the Holocaust, but I'm not saying I'm allowed to do it because my grandfather was in Auschwitz. I'm simply asking the questions. I'm concerned that after all the survivors are gone, the Holocaust will turn into a myth, something that cannot be perceived.feedback

Manfred Goldberg

We were on a starvation diet and to receive our minimal rations we had to give our number – even our names had been taken. I still clearly remember mine, I was 56478. But throughout it all, I never lost my determination to survive.feedback

Manfred Goldberg

When I was asked by the Holocaust Education Trust to return here, I asked for time to think about it because I couldn't bring myself to answer yes. I agonized for a couple of days, and after discussing with my wife, I decided I must face my past and I agreed to come. I supported him when we were marching. Anyone who couldn't keep pace, who trailed behind was immediately taken aside and shot in the head and left by the wayside. We couldn't afford for him to trail behind.feedback

Michael Vachon

As a survivor of the Holocaust who hid from the Nazis in Budapest and later was himself a refugee, Soros knows firsthand what it means to be in mortal peril. He carries the memory of the international community's rejection of Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazis. It is from the crucible of those experiences that his empathy for refugees from war-torn Syria and elsewhere was born.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

It is convenient to see the Vichy regime as born of nothingness, returned to nothingness . Yes, it's convenient, but it is false. We cannot build pride upon a lie.feedback

Cheryl Phoenix

If my child came home with that, I would not be happy. This is a very, very emotional thing. If it was something about the Holocaust – having to guess about how many Jews to gas – would they be so brazen about it?feedback

Clay Higgins

The free world... all of Christendom... is at war with Islamic horror. Not a single radicalized Islamic suspect should be granted any measure of quarter. Their intended entry to the American homeland should be summarily denied. Every conceivable measure should be engaged to hunt them down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.feedback

Steven Goldstein

Congressman Higgins, Auschwitz is not a television studio. It is the site of genocide and tragedy for the Jewish people that you have disrespected. Not only must you apologize, but you must also get the sensitivity training appropriate for your continued service in the U.S. Congress.feedback

Berta Herscovici

Uncles and aunts and cousins, they were in this death train. They destroyed me in a way because I could never get rid of my memories. … Some of my days are hell even now after so many years.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

May her example inspire our fellow countrymen, who will find in her the best of France.feedback

Jean Louis Debre

She embodied for an entire generation the struggle of women for the freedom to decide on motherhood. More profoundly, she represented for men and women seeking a new future a European desire for peace and prosperity.feedback

Simone Veil

Great debates that have for a time divided the French people appear with the passing of time as a necessary step to forming a new social consensus that is part of the tradition of tolerance in our country.feedback

Chris Kelly

We were really aggressive about saying we are a no-nudity platform. We drew some difficult lines while I was there – Holocaust denial being the most prominent.feedback

Stephen Holden

Ms. Chastain's watchful, layered performance helps keep the film on an even keel, but it is not enough to prevent 'The Zookeeper's Wife,' with its reassuringly cuddly critters, from feeling like a Disney version of the Holocaust.feedback

Alison Dreith

He routinely compares abortion to the Holocaust and slavery and this is another example of him grandstanding in a disturbing and dangerous way. Furthermore, this special session is all about the governor's political ambitions. He wants to be able to tell any future adversaries that he called his general assembly in the summer to pass all of thee special abortions restrictions so he'll have his conservative credentials.feedback

Claire Ferguson

What came across to me as unique and fresh was how do you live with pain? How do you have a life after such atrocity?feedback

Ed Mosberg

Not to forget, this is the whole thing ... that next generation will still remember.feedback

Pawel Sawicki

We were not the only one who reacted in this case. We rather noticed complaints of others and joined them. However it's good that the item was removed from the stock. Selling such objects is at least inappropriate, disturbing and disrespectful to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust.feedback

Roger Lyons

It's not your typical Holocaust film. Steve is a unique person. He took his second life and he really ran with it.feedback

Roger Lyons

Most survivors don't want to talk about their experience. Steve was the opposite. He was an open faucet.feedback

Jessica Alter

The first travel ban, the Muslim ban, put me over the edge, candidly because my father's family was in the Holocaust, and my grandmother was very active in the Belgian underground. And I just imagined, what would she do? No one on the team had used it. I would never argue that tech is a panacea. A lot of people felt galvanized and wanted to do something, and didn't think there was anything meaningful to do.feedback

Simmy Allen

He is taking the opportunity to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to identify with the memory, which is meaningful.feedback

Jeff Halper

I can see Paul using Jeremy to legitimise himself. You should know what you are joining and what you are supporting. Jeremy certainly isn't a Holocaust denier. [But] he should have been more critical.feedback

Francis Clarke-Lowe

It would have been surprising if Jeremy Corbyn didn't know about Paul's views. He may have thought Deir Yassin was a good cause regardless of Paul Eisen's views. But it is unlikely he didn't know about Paul's views.feedback

Gill Kaffash

Jeremy was a stalwart of DYR... a very important supporter. You can rely on Jeremy. He came to this house and sat in that chair. I don't think there is evidence gas chambers were used to exterminate Jews. I don't think there is evidence of a policy of extermination. I don't think Jeremy Corbyn is a Holocaust denier. He is definitely not anti-Semitic.feedback

Carol Patterson

It's history. You can't change history. The Holocaust happened. They built a China wall. You can't destroy history.feedback

Mélanie Joly

The National Holocaust monument commemorates the six million Jews as well as the five million other victims that were murdered during the Holocaust. The plaque has been removed and we will replace it with language that reflects the horrors experienced by the Jewish people.feedback

Leslaw Piszewski

Restitution is the only financial tool to maintain Jewish communities as well as the Jewish heritage, including 1,200 cemeteries.feedback

Hania Rosenberg

In Poland, there was no official process for this: You have to go to the courts. We did go to the courts, but it was like a carousel: You go around and around and around and around. You have to produce the documents that they need, and then it's not enough. There are always more documents you need to provide.feedback

Witold Waszczykowski

Polish law treats everyone equally. Any legal or natural person, or their heir, is entitled to recover prewar property unlawfully seized by the Nazi German or the Soviet authorities, or the postwar communist regime.feedback

Hania Rosenberg

No one was poor, no one was rich: We were all about average, like any small town. I remember our backyard, with dogs, hens and geese, where we had a cow, which my father bought when I was born because he said you should have your own milk. It was a happy childhood. Maybe this conference will make a difference. I really hope so. We have been trying on our own for 26 years. They say that maybe something will change in 20 years, but none of us has 20 years to wait.feedback

Jaroslaw Kaczynski

Is Poland able to turn back time and compensate all those who suffered in those tragic events? Does it mean that the descendants of poor Poles are supposed to pay the descendants of those who were rich? This is what it comes down to.feedback

Leslaw Piszewski

Attitudes have not changed at all. Courts issue negative decisions or prolong the process to the extent that the claimant resigns from the process.feedback

Will Oldham

People have a lot of respect for Merle, but they're probably not fully cognizant of how much deeper they could go and find such gold. There's gonna be the joy of exploring and discovering [when you listen to Best Troubadour] – in all the pre-nuclear holocaust years we have left.feedback

Conner Haines

Sir, we're actually exposing the holocaust that's happening in America. Sir, these are image bearers of god.feedback

Zachary Ruff

There is no holocaust happening in America. If you want to talk about a holocaust happening in America, go into an inner city and talk to the poor and underprivileged.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Today we have a double duty: the duty of remembrance and the duty of making sure this does not happen again, by refusing the moral weakness that can tempt some; the relativism that can tempt others; and the negationism, in which some have taken refuge.feedback

Hasan Minhaj - The Daily Show

His go-to move when you ask him a tough question is denying the Holocaust. I do not see Steve Bannon. I do NOT see Steve Bannon. Not see Steve Bannon. Not see Steve Bannon. You gotta be twice as good. You can't make any mistakes. Because when one of you messes up, he blames your entire group. And now you know what it feels like to be a minority.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

We have a duty today to their memory. Does she want us to no longer commemorate? Madame Le Pen and her people can complain, but I will not back down.feedback

Ashok Nehru

I guess she was like that. She felt she had to get the truth across to her. It was a close family relationship, not a political relationship. She felt free enough to do that.feedback

Shobha Magdolna Friedmann Nehru

I said, Indu, you know I never talk to you about politics, never, no,' . 'Please look at this – these are all complaints about sterilization of young boys and old men. You know yourself that there is no need to sterilize. Why?' She listened, looked at me. But.' What but?feedback

Nigel Farage

It depends what the circumstances are. I have never said a bad word about her, but I have never said a good word about her party and that's where I am with this - it's slightly awkward.feedback

Marine Le Pen

Let me make one thing clear: I abhor these theories. I don't accept that one can defend them. There are no members of the FN leadership who defends these theories.feedback

Marine Le Pen

Today, the danger for our Jewish compatriots ... is the rise of Islamist fundamentalism. I have said it and will say it again: I am their only shield.feedback

Jean-Yves Camus

French politics are not only about the Holocaust. It's an important topic, because it has to do with the memory of the Second World War, but it's not an everyday issue when you are president.feedback

Elie Wiesel

Mr. President, I cannot not tell you something. I have been in the former Yugoslavia last fall. I cannot sleep since for what I have seen. As a Jew I am saying that. We must do something to stop the bloodshed in that country.feedback

Arnold Jacob Wolf

It is our duty to remember the Shoah and to teach it our children. Not to give us Jews special rights or special roles, but to make us sensitive to the outrages that marred all of Western history and to the tasks of human rescue and succor that still remain.feedback

Sean Spicer

The president went out of his way to recognize the Holocaust.feedback

Trevor Noah

It's 100 days in Trump time. For us, it's 15 years. It's starting to become clear that President Trump has accomplished very little of what he promised. Travel ban? Blocked. Healthcare plan? Blocked. And surprise, surprise, no one wants to pay for his wall. You don't get to just disregard the number because you don't like the current results. Because if most voters got to choose the number they preferred, well, you wouldn't be in the White House, Donald. It's true, you can't tear your eyes away from Sean Spicer. It's like watching a car crash that knows nothing about the Holocaust.feedback

Benyamin Netanyahu

Iran and Islamic State (sic) want to destroy us and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today.feedback

Peter Rapaport

We teach about the thing that we think will prevent future Holocausts. … It isn't our focus to be pro-Jewish or to be just a Holocaust-education [organization]. We want to use the knowledge of the Holocaust and go further.feedback

Maatje Mostart

We stay out of the political playing field, and see it as our task to achieve our mission–combating anti-Semitism, racism, and discrimination–through our educational activities. It isn't our focus to be pro-Jewish or to be just a Holocaust-education [organization].feedback

William Shulman

There's been universal distaste for doing this. … Our function is not to engage in politics. It's to engage in Holocaust education, remembrance, and research. Anything that deviates from that damages our mission.feedback

Rolf Wolfswinkel

In Jewish circles, that was always considered a little fraudulent. By taking the Jewishness out of the Holocaust, are we still talking about the same thing?feedback

Charlie Chaplin

And nowadays it's perhaps even more relevant - with what's going on in Syria. There are people who still deny the Holocaust, too.feedback

James Poniewozik

The real draw of the story is the show's delight in telling it. There's no patter like 'Fargo' patter.feedback

Dan Plesch

This is a huge resource for combating Holocaust denial. The German national authorities were never given access to the archive by the allies after the war. All of this has never seen the light of day.feedback

Dalia Katz

I get to not only help her, with the therapeutic part of the theater, but I get to share her story with so many others.feedback

Jacqueline Kimmelstiel

When I saw the Statue of Liberty, I said, I'm free, I'm free.feedback

Jacqueline Kimmelstiel

I'm 89 years old and it bothers me to this day, that I didn't get an education. Then they started to come. Every day we would see convoys of people being brought to the train station. I was pretty stupid and I waved at him. But he was smart enough to look away, because if they would have seen it, I would have joined him. There's so few of us left, and it's getting less and less every day. There are so many people who deny the Holocaust. I mean my husband didn't put that number on his arm by himself. It's my duty to do the performance, and I do it willingly and in my husband's memory.feedback

Dalia Katz

I feel a little nervous because I want to do her story justice.feedback

Sean Spicer

I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. Frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which there is no comparison. And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that.feedback

Dan Plesch

Even action against the perpetrators of the massacre of British RAF officers attempting to escape from prison camp Stalag Luft III, a flight made iconic by films such as The Great Escape, was curtailed.feedback

Gabor Szanto

No nation bears collective guilt for the past, but we all have a personal responsibility for the present and the future.feedback

Sean Spicer

Nothing has changed in our posture. You had someone who was despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. [Hitler] brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns and dropped them down to innocent in the middle of towns.feedback

Peter Bazalgette

In terms of handling footfall to the area, there will of course be detailed plans developed around the final design. But it is worth noting the estimate of one million visitors to the Memorial is, to a very large degree, merely a subset of the millions already visiting Westminster.feedback

Erik Wemple

The Anti-Defamation League was closed for Passover around the time that White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed, “You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons”; spoke of “the Holocaust center”; and, when pressed on the matter, mentioned something about Syria’s Bashar al-Assad dropping poisonous chemicals on “innocent” folks.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Wednesday tried a humble apology after arguably his worst 24 hours on the job - no small feat, considering his previous gaffes, mispronunciations, lies, exaggerations and insults. “I made a mistake - there’s no other way to say it - I got into a topic I shouldn’t have, and I screwed up, ” Spicer said in an appearance at the Newseum. The topic, of course, was the Holocaust and his bizarre assertion that not even Hitler used gas on his own people. (That it was uttered on Passover made it all the more cringe-worthy.).feedback

Sean Spicer

Part of existing is understanding that when you do something wrong, if you own up to it, you do it. You let people know, and I did. It's painful to myself to know that I did something like that, because that obviously was not my intention, and to know when you screw up that you possibly offended a lot of people. So I would ask for folks' forgiveness, to understand that I should not have tried to make a comparison. There's no comparing atrocities and this is a very solemn time for so many folks that this is part of that. I've let the President down… this was my mistake, my bad.feedback

Molly Giguiere

If you think about the context now, in our modern time, it is especially important. I mean, you have Steve Bannon . . . It was disgusting.feedback

Kathleen Delano

After Spicer's gaffe, I searched for a picture of gassed Jews. I was appalled to find 'Holocaust is a hoax' among the top Google results.feedback

Ryan Jonas

It's important to come here. . . . If we don't understand the history, we can't stop it from happening again.feedback

Sean Spicer

I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no, he [Hitler] was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing. There was clearly ... I understand your point, thank you. There was not ... He brought them into the Holocaust center I understand that. In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable.feedback

James Downie

When White House press secretary Sean Spicer put both feet in his mouth on Tuesday, executives at United Airlines probably wanted to send him a fruit basket or 50. Talk of “Holocaust centers” has taken some of the spotlight off of the airline still dealing with the fallout from the videos of a bloodied passenger forcibly removed from a United flight. On Tuesday, United chief executive Oscar Muñoz finally apologized to the passenger whom Chicago police had dragged off the airplane. But calls for boycott of United are likely to fail despite their laudability, thanks to oligopoly in the airline industry - a few businesses taking over an entire industry and reducing competition. These have become increasingly common in recent decades as regulators and politicians have backed off of anti-trust laws - and the result is terrible for Americans’ pocketbooks.feedback

Brian Schatz

I find nothing funny about the Press Secretary bungling Holocaust history. Because I'm not sure they should get the benefit of the doubt.feedback

Steven Goldstein

On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. President Trump must fire him at once.feedback

Sean Spicer

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War Two, you know, you had a, someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn't even sink to the, to using chemical weapons. So you have to, if you're Russia, ask yourself is this a country that, and a regime, that you want to align yourself with. His statements imply a profound lack of knowledge of events of the Second World War, including the Holocaust. Moreover, they are liable to strengthen the hands of those whose goal is to distort history.feedback

Sean Spicer

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II. You had a ... someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink ... to using chemical weapons. You have to, if you're Russia, ask yourself, is this a country and a regime you want to align yourself with? I think when you come to sarin gas... he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing. He brought them into the Holocaust center, I understand that. But I was saying that in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns, dropped them down into innocent – into the middle of towns.feedback

Sean Spicer

I think when you come to Sarin gas – there was no, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Ashad [sic] is doing. I mean, there was clearly – I, I understand your point. Thank you. Thank you, I appreciate that. There was not in the, in the – he brought 'em into the Holocaust centers. I understand that. But I'm saying in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns, dropped them down to innocent, into the middle of towns, it was brought, the use of it – I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.feedback

Sean Spicer

You had a -- you know someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. He brought them into the Holocaust Center. But I'm saying that in the way that Assad used them where he went in towns, dropped them down to innocent - into the middle of towns - it was brought - so the use of it - I appreciate the clarification. In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. I was trying to draw a distinction of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on population centers. Any attack on innocent people is reprehensible and inexcusable.feedback

Sean Spicer

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War Two - you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to the - to using chemical weapons. Hitler "was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing ... he brought them into the Holocaust centre and I understand that, what I'm saying is in the way that Assad used them where he went into towns, dropped them down into the middle of towns.feedback

Sean Spicer

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II. Someone who is despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. You have to, if you're Russia, ask yourself, is this a country that you, and a regime that you want to align yourself with? He brought them into the Holocaust centre. I understand that.

You had someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn't even sink to chemical weapons.

We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II. Someone as despicable as Hitler... didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. People keep asking me: when are you running for mayor? I think when you come to sarin gas, there was no, he (Hitler) was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing. There was clearly ... I understand your point, thank you. There was not ... He brought them into the Holocaust center I understand that. I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.feedback

Steven Goldenstein

On Passover no less, Sean Spicer has engaged in Holocaust denial, the most offensive form of fake news imaginable, by denying Hitler gassed millions of Jews to death. Spicer's statement is the most evil slur upon a group of people we have ever heard from a White House press secretary. Sean Spicer now lacks the integrity to serve as White House press secretary, and President Trump must fire him at once.feedback

Sean Spicer

Even Hitler didn't use chemical weapons. We didn't even use chemical Weapons in World War II. You had someone as despicable as Hitler and who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. I think when you come to sarin gas, he was using the gas on his own people in the same way that Assad is doing. He brought them into the …to the Holocaust centre, I understand that.

We didn't even use chemical weapons in World War II. You had a – you know someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. He brought them into the Holocaust Center. But I'm saying that in the way that Assad used them where he went in towns, dropped them down – into the middle of towns – it was brought – so the use of it – I appreciate the clarification. That was not the intent.feedback

Sean Spicer

I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad made against his own people last week using chemical weapons and gas. And frankly I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive comment about the Holocaust and there is no comparison. For that, I apologize. It was a mistake to do that. You had ... someone as despicable as Hitler, who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. [Hitler] brought them into the Holocaust center.feedback

Sean Spicer

You had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons. He was not using gas on his own people the same way. To suggest that remembering the Holocaust and acknowledging all of the people – Jewish, Gypsies, priests, disabled, gays and lesbians – it is pathetic that people are picking on a statement.feedback

Sean Spicer

You had -- someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to the -- to using chemical weapons. So you have to, if you're Russia, ask yourself, Is this a country that you and a regime you want to align your self with? I think when you come to sarin gas, he was not using the gas on his own people the same way that Assad is doing. He brought them into the Holocaust centers, I understand that. But in the way that Assad used them, where he went into towns, dropped them down to innocent -- in the middle of towns....I appreciate the clarification…that was not the intent.feedback

Erik Wemple

There are lots of rules and common laws about invoking the name of Adolf Hitler as part of any political discussion, with the general thrust being this: Tread very, very carefully.feedback

In no way was I trying to lessen the horrendous nature of the Holocaust. However, I was trying to draw a contrast of the tactic of using airplanes to drop chemical weapons on innocent people.feedback

Sean Spicer

Today I was trying to describe the attack that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad made on his own people using chemical weapons. Frankly, I mistakenly used an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, to which there is frankly no comparison. Obviously, that is not what I was intending to do. And I – especially during this week [Passover] – regret using that term and apologize and hope that we can focus on the president's decisive action that he took to make sure that we deal with the situation in Syria. We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II.feedback

The people of Israel underwent a horrible Holocaust 70 years ago. Millions of Jews were murdered … and the world saw and remained silent; we as Jews who felt this silence in our own flesh cried out for years, we asked how the world knew and remained silent? … As Jews it is forbidden for us to remain silent … Genocide cannot be ignored, not in Syria and not anywhere, and not against any people, even if they are not our friends.feedback

Samuel Norich

Why did The Forward have a society column? Two reasons: because we had a Masha Leon to write it, and because fund-raising events are a key source of financing for the range of cultural and social welfare causes the Jewish community sponsors here and abroad. For Masha, Jewish history was also biography, and often enough autobiography.feedback

Seth Lipsky

My own theory, is that the knowledge that Aliza would be in Israel was one of the things that sustained Begin in his epic journey from the Gulag to Palestine, where he led the revolt against the British and set the stage for independence. When Masha was a girl, she and her mother caused to be sent one of the most consequential messages in the history of the Jews.feedback

Bashar al-Assad

Even if they are not a regular Israeli army, they are still fighting for Israel. And Israel shares the objectives with Turkey, the United States, France, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and other states. They all share the same objective. It is a war that has taken a new form and uses new instruments. Practically, our victory over the terrorists is a victory over all those states put together.feedback

President Trump may have figured this out on Wednesday. “He can’t criticize Barack Obama on one hand for turning a blind eye to Assad’s chemical weapons in 2012 and then allow it to happen in 2017 and do absolutely nothing while this holocaust unfurls before our eyes.”.feedback

Israel Meir Lau

This is certainly a 'Shoah' of the Syrian people and it did not start today, it has been six years since a 'Shoah' landed on them.

It isn't just Jewish people who feel disgusted and offended by what Mr Livingstone said and by the way he has conducted himself over this matter, and it isn't just Jewish Labour members who feel ashamed of any indulgence of his views anywhere in the Labour Party. This shames us all, and I'm deeply saddened by it. It is hard not to conclude that his use of inflammatory language to dismiss the fully justified outrage of the Jewish community and others will incite further distortions of the Holocaust in our public discourse.feedback

Ephraim Mirvis

This was a chance for the Labour Party to show that it would not tolerate wilful and unapologetic baiting of the Jewish community, by shamefully using the Holocaust as a tool with which to inflict the maximum amount of offence.feedback

Tom Watson

I find it incomprehensible that our elected lay members on the disciplinary panel found Ken Livingstone guilty of such serious charges, and then concluded that he can remain a member of the Labour party. This shames us all, and I'm deeply saddened by it. I am ashamed that we have allowed Mr Livingstone to cause such distress. It is hard not to conclude that his use of inflammatory language to dismiss the fully justified outrage of the Jewish community and others will incite further distortions of the Holocaust in our public discourse.feedback

Ephraim Mirvis

This was a chance for the Labour Party to show that it would not tolerate willful and unapologetic baiting of the Jewish community, by shamefully using the Holocaust as a tool with which to inflict the maximum amount of offense. Worryingly, the party has yet again failed to show that it is sufficiently serious about tackling the scourge of anti-Semitism. The Labour Party has failed the Jewish community, it has failed its members and it has failed all those who believe in zero tolerance of anti-Semitism.feedback

I'm an emotional wreck because I've never played someone so sad. I've always played complex women, but with a resolve in the centre. Harper doesn't have that – Harper is deeply terrified of everything, all the way through until maybe the last two scenes, so rehearsing her is quite an anxious process. My parents have done well to raise 11 human beings who stay in touch with each other and look out for each other and care about each other. As the seventh one, I was a needy little thing, still am, though not in the same way. I was a bit anxious, obsessed with wars and the Holocaust….feedback

Karen Pollock

Even when it has been made blatantly clear that his comments have caused deep hurt and offence to Jewish people, and in particular to Holocaust survivors, still Ken Livingstone has persisted down this route – repeatedly invoking the Holocaust, promoting a misleading and misinformed version of history to further his agenda.

And when this gentleman (Homan) stands up there and says he doesn't go after people, he should read today's (Sacramento) Bee.

Bernard Marks

At Auschwitz, I was working, building a road. Sometimes we would take stones from one side, in the heat, and carry them to the other side. And then some people would take it from this side to put back over there.feedback

Scott Jones

By ICE's own numbers, 95 percent of the people they used to arrest, that they've already identified, that they want to take custody of, are getting out of jail before they can get to them. And that's scary, because they're criminals. They've demonstrated a propensity for criminal behavior.feedback

Bernard Marks

Another way to exterminate you, because they used the word 'arbeit macht frei. Work makes you free.' Actually, that was not the case. They should have used 'work will exterminate you.' Instead of putting you into the gas chamber, they just worked you to death without giving you any food.feedback

Scott Jones

We never ask someone's immigration status. We never ask for proof of residency or documentation or legal status. My primary concern as a law enforcement executive … is ensuring that folks in our community have the comfort and confidence to call law enforcement if they need help, and know that they won't be scrutinized because of their status, legal or otherwise.feedback

Bernard Marks

When I was a little boy in Poland, for no other reason but for being Jewish, I was hauled off by the Nazis. And for no other reason I was picked up and separated from my family who was exterminated in Auschwitz. And I am a survivor of Auschwitz and Dachau. I spent five and a half years in concentration camps, for one reason and one reason only: Because we picked on people. And you, as the sheriff, who we elected as sheriff of this county, we did not elect you for sheriff of Washington, D.C. It's about time you side with the people here.feedback

He's educated himself. He's done philanthropic work now, and I think that actions speak very loudly … and his actions have helped a lot of people.feedback

Naomi Ellis

They know about the Holocaust. They know about Nazis. We talk a lot about the importance of equality and tolerance, loving everybody no matter what. I had to tell them that not everybody feels that way. Some people are ignorant, and this is what they do. This is the real reality that we live in. People hate us for no reason or want us to feel scared for who we are. That's not something I wanted to have to tell them.feedback

The results that quality raters flag is used as 'training data' for Google's human coders who write search algorithms, as well as for its machine-learning systems. Basically, content of this nature is used to help Google figure out how to automatically identify upsetting or offensive content in general.feedback

Danny Sullivan - Search Engine Land

In other words, being flagged as 'upsetting-offensive' by a quality rater does not actually mean that a page or site will be identified this way in Google's actual search engine.

We will see how some of this works out. I'll be honest. We're learning as we go … We've been very pleased with what raters give us in general.

It's a religious test, as you pointed out. It imposes a different burden on Muslims than others. And the irony is not lost on me that it was issued the same day as the White House issued their Holocaust Remembrance Day proclamation that unlike any previous administration removed all reference to Jews. So you put a religious test on Muslims and you try to scrub reference to Jews in the Holocaust Remembrance. This was horribly, horribly mishandled.feedback

Tim Kaine

We have to remember this. This is what Holocaust denial is. It's either to deny that it happened or many Holocaust deniers acknowledge, Oh yeah people were killed. But it was a lot of innocent people. Jews weren't targeted.' The fact that they did that and imposed this religious test against Muslims in the executive orders on the same day, this is not a coincidence.feedback

Robert Reich

Such a vision would only alienate America from the rest of the world, destroying our nation's moral authority abroad and risking everything we love about our country. Unsupervised by people who know what they're doing, Trump and Bannon could also bring the world closer to a nuclear holocaust.feedback

Yvette Cooper

This is not just about the impact of British citizens, one of our closest allies has chosen to ban refugees and target Muslims and all he can say is 'well, it wouldn't be our policy' - that is not good enough. Has he urged the US administration to lift this order, to help refugees and to stop targeting Muslims? This order was signed on Holocaust Memorial Day - for the sake of history, for heaven's sake, have the guts to speak out!feedback

Tim Kaine

All of these things are happening together. When you have the chief political adviser in the White House, Steve Bannon, who is connected with a news organization that traffics in white supremacy and anti-Semitism and they put out a Holocaust statement that omits any mention of Jews. President Obama, President Bush always talk about the Holocaust in connection with the slaughter of Jews. The final solution was about the slaughter of Jews. We have to remember this. This is what Holocaust denial is.feedback

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

President Trump is not willing to get this wrong which is why he wants to move forward quickly and protect Americans. I recognize, in fact, obviously that that was what the Holocaust was about.

I recognize, in fact, obviously that that was what the Holocaust was about. It's a horrible event. And obviously a miserable time in history that we remember here at the White House and certainly will never forget the Jewish people that suffered in World War II. Everyone's suffering in the Holocaust including, obviously, all of the Jewish people affected and the miserable genocide that occurred is something that we consider to be extraordinarily sad and something that can never be forgotten and something that if we could wipe it off of the history books we could. But we can't.feedback

Dick Durbin

History will judge where America's leaders stood today. Faced with the humanitarian crisis of our time, the United States cannot turn its back on children fleeing persecution, genocide, and terror.

The historical evidence is largely against … hugely against … six million Jews having been deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler … I believe there were no gas chambers.feedback

John Paul II spoke about millions of Jews, were 'murdered' in the Holocaust. He (Benedict XVI) didn't use the word 'murdered' he used the word 'killed'. It's not the same. He didn't say who killed them. John Paul II spoke about the 'Nazis'. In this speech the word 'Nazis' doesn't exist.feedback

The combination of a regime with a very radical agenda, together with a distorted sense of reality, as is clearly indicated by the statements we heard today, put together with nuclear weapons, I think that's a combination, a dangerous combination, that no-one in the international community can accept.feedback

Martin Schulz - European Parliament

For me, a Holocaust denier can not be the doyen by age of a multinational assembly. I hope measures will be taken to avoid Le Pen presiding at the next parliament. The best solution would be that the French don't vote for him.feedback

It was a wonderful opportunity to shine a light on this unknown, this little unknown Holocaust rescue story. But I think more importantly to also shine a much deserved spotlight on this extraordinary couple. And – with an opportunity to hopefully inspire people with this story of the ability of basically ordinary people to achieve an extraordinary result under very trying circumstances.feedback

I felt guilty about the fact that I knew I was going to leave and leave my parents and sister behind. Immediately that, you know, my first thought was to save my own life. I never got over that. I never got over that.feedback

Pope Benedict XVI

The Apostolic See provided assistance, often in a hidden and discreet way.feedback

The silence of Pius XII before the Holocaust still hurts because something should have been done.feedback

It's as pessimistic as we can make it but it's pessimistic in a joyful sense. Fatalistic in a joyful sense. There's nothing foreboding about this. It doesn't serve any kind of moral end.feedback

Mario Marazziti

Over the past couple of years the situation is becoming worse and worse. There is no memory of the Holocaust, of the extermination of the gypsies in the camps, and Roma are becoming a scapegoat for any social insecurity or bad feeling that there is in the population.feedback

Eckart Conze

The study shows that from 1933 on the Foreign Office was involved in the violent policies of National Socialism. It participated actively in the pursuit and then murder of European Jewry and it was – you can't see it otherwise – a criminal organisation.feedback

Each step down the long staircase onto the center of New York City's heartbreak will be painful for many. It's going to be a very powerful and necessary experience. But troubling questions about the museum's financing remain. Officials in New York are asking Congress to subsidise the 9/11 museum as it does for museums memorialising the Holocaust and Pearl Harbor. This is a debate that is far from over.feedback

The Holocaust which happened to the Jews could happen anywhere else in the world. It happened in Bosnia 50 years later, in Srebrenica. You never know who might be next.feedback
