Hollande visited a memorial and museum to the Holocaust in Paris on Sunday and praised its work as crucial “for Jews and for humanity.”


Some 76,000 Jews were deported from Nazi-occupied France to concentration camps, and the overwhelming majority never returned.


Hollande said Iranian threats against Israel “disturb me,” but gave no indication of what his policy toward Iran would be.


Hollande, a Socialist, tops polls ahead of a May 6 runoff against conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy. Sarkozy has worked to improve French relations with Israel and taken a hard line against Iran.
