Pope marking Holocaust warns another genocide possible

first_imgROME (AP) — Pope Francis is marking Holocaust Remembrance Day by warning that warped ideologies can pave the way to another genocide. Francis spoke off the cuff at the end of his weekly general audience. He was commemorating the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp in Poland, where Nazis killed more than 1 million Jews and others. The Argentine pope insisted on the need to remember, saying it was a sign of humanity and a condition for a peaceful future. But he said remembering “also means to be aware that these things can happen again, starting with ideological proposals that claim to save a people and end up destroying a people and humanity.” Francis prayed at the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial during his 2016 visit to Poland.last_img
