History week: “When the rule of law stops, tyranny begins”

“When the rule of law stops, tyranny begins,” said Secretary General Thorbjørn Jagland during a speech marking the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.

He added: “One and a half million children and millions more adults, Jews, Roma, homosexuals, disabled people, political dissidents, religious minorities and others, singled out for their race, religion, political beliefs, or their sexual orientation. Murdered.

“Everything has been said about what happened. Everything has been said about how it should not happen again.

“I wish to say: enough talking. We must remember, and we must act.”
