Holocaust Remembrance Day Commemorated in Morocco

International Holocaust Remembrance Day: an occasion to recall the brave decision of late king Mohammed V to protect the 250,000 Moroccan Jews from the Nazis: “ the Jews are under my protection and I reject any distinction that should be made among my people”, the Sovereign said

The US ambassador to Morocco, Puneet Talwar, said on Sunday in Casablanca that His Majesty King Mohammed VI has spoken out strongly against Holocaust denial and in favor of the ideals of tolerance in Morocco and around the world.

On the International Day honoring the memory of the Holocaust victims, Talwar said, “HM has spoken out strongly against Holocaust denial and has supported and encouraged tolerance and coexistence in Morocco, in the region, and around the world.” Talwar made this statement in a statement to MAP TV channel M24.

At the conclusion of the celebration with the theme “Mohammed V: Savior of Moroccan Jews during the Holocaust,” the American ambassador praised His Majesty King Mohammed VI for carrying on “the strong legacy” of the late HM King Mohammed V and the late HM King Hassan II.

“This is a very solemn occasion, Talwar continued, lamenting that “one of the greatest tragedies of this era (the Holocaust) is that many people, millions of people, remained silent and allowed this murder to occur.”

In this regard, he emphasized, “Morocco was not indifferent to that time, thanks to His Majesty Sultan Mohammed V, who played a key role in protecting the Jewish community in Morocco,” applauding the fact that Morocco “was not indifferent to that time.” “Today, HM Sultan Mohammed V’s legacy is still very strong.

Talwar stated that the United States is “very proud to stand with the Kingdom of Morocco on this issue” and added, “This is something we are very happy to see.”
