Pope in Holocaust remembrance day message: World must remember ‘black pages of history’

Pope Francis says the world needs to remember “the black pages of history,” as he marked international Holocaust Remembrance Day during his visit to Panama.

“We need to keep alive memories of past tragedies and learn from the black pages of history to never again commit the same mistakes,” Francis says during his weekly Angelus message.

He says that “cultivating justice, increasing harmony and sustaining integration” were “instruments of peace and builders of a better world.”

Francis delivers his weekly Angelus address in Panama, as he winds up a global gathering of young people at World Youth Day festivities.
