Never forget

O elegante Príncipe Charles em sua primeira visita oficial a Israel
Abaixo, em inglês, suas palavras sobre o holocausto:

"All too often, language is used which turns disagreement into dehumanization.
Words are used as badges of shame to mark others as enemies, to brand those who are different as somehow deviant. All too often, virtue seems to be sought through verbal violence. All too often, real violence ensues, and acts of unspeakable cruelty are still perpetrated around the world against people for reasons of their religion, their race or their beliefs.

"Knowing, as we do, the darkness to which such behaviour leads, we must be vigilant in discerning these ever-changing threats; we must be fearless in confronting falsehoods and resolute in resisting words and acts of violence. And we must never rest in seeking to create mutual understanding and respect. We must tend the earth of our societies so that the seeds of division cannot take root and grow. And we must never forget that every human being is be-tselem Elokim - 'in the image of G-d' - and even a single human life is ke-olam malei - 'like an entire universe.'"
