Those words keep playing over and over in my head. These are the words that are true. Holocaust survivor Primo Levi: "It has happened once, and it could all happen again."
'Never again' is the rallying cry for all who believe that mankind must speak out against genocide.
I hope that the German people will never again make the mistake of believing that because the American people are peace-loving, they will sit back hoping for peace if any nation uses force or the threat of force to acquire dominion over other peoples and other governments.
James F. Byrnes
“The Security Council has today said that in the 21st century, the world will not tolerate genocide or crimes against humanity.” Nicola Reindorp
Never again should the international community’s response to these crimes be found wanting. Rwandan President Paul Kagame
"On occasions such as this, rhetoric comes easily. We rightly say 'never again.' But action is much harder. Since the Holocaust the world has, to its shame, failed more than once to prevent or halt genocide." UN Secretary General Kofi Annan
“Never again must we be shy in the face of the evidence” of genocide...Bill Clinton
We wish to remember.
But we wish to remember for a purpose, namely
to ensure that never again evil will prevail. ...
Only a world at peace, with justice for all,
can avoid repeating the mistakes and terrible crimes of the past.
.John Paul II, Yad Vashem, March 23, 2000
