Tue, May 23, 2017: Trump visits Israel’s Holocaust memorial

President Trump, visiting Israel’s national Holocaust memorial, paid solemn tribute Tuesday to the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis, calling it “history’s darkest hour.”

At the memorial, Yad Vashem, Trump lighted an eternal flame and laid a wreath honoring the victims. He called the Nazi campaign of extermination against European Jewry “the most savage crime against God and his children.”

“Millions of wonderful and beautiful lives — men, women and children — were extinguished as part of a systematic attempt to eliminate the Jewish people,” said the president. “It is our solemn duty to remember, to mourn, to grieve and to honor every single life that was so cruelly and viciously taken.”
