Obama: Lets recommit to remembrance, always oppose anti-Semitism
US President Barack Obama has urged on Monday to "recommit ourselves to the task of remembrance, and to always oppose anti-Semitism wherever it takes root."


"Even as we mourn those whose lives were taken, this day also provides us with an opportunity to honor those who emerged from the darkness of the Shoah to rebuild their lives in new communities around the world," the president said in a statement released to commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day.


Obama will address Holocaust survivors, along with others who worked to preserve the survivors' testimony, next week at the Shoah Foundation. (Yitzhak Benhorin)
