AUSCHWITZ REMEMBERED

"From broken windows to death camps was the blink of an eye," Moshe
Kantor, chairman of the European Jewish Congress, was quoted as saying
in "The New York Times" of January 27. Kantor was referring to the four
years between the 1938 attacks on German Jews known as Kristallnacht, or
Night of Broken Glass, and the 1942 Wannsee Conference of German leaders
delineating the "final solution to the Jewish question in Europe."

Speaking at various forums marking the anniversary of Auschwitz's
liberation, world leaders rose to the occasion. Their remarks reflected
both an awareness of history and the demands of contemporary politics,
and the major speeches made the connection between antisemitic incidents
and genocide.
