The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has issued a statement to mark National Holocaust Memorial Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
In his message, Dr Williams asks whether the legacy of Holocaust survivors "will...be a world in which such things no longer happen because we and our children have learned the lessons and acted on them? Or will their generation, with all its suffering, its tenacity and its offering of hope pass from us like a nightmare best forgotten?"
