President Ilir Meta commemorated Holocaust victims on International Remembrance Day.
The head of state says he is proud of his country that defended and welcomed thousands of Jews.
On International Remembrance Day, we commemorate millions of innocent victims of the heartless Holocaust atrocity and we hope that intolerance, coexistence, and violations of human rights and freedoms will never be repeated.
Two decades ago in the heart of Europe, unfortunately we witnessed massacres and ethnic and religious cleansing in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo.
Genocide and such inhumane acts against anyone belonging to a different religion, ethnicity or nationality, should never happen and should never be allowed again.
Proud of our nation that in the darkest period of mankind, protected and welcomed thousands of Jews coming from other countries./abcnews.al
