Rivlin: No country can ‘legislate their forgetting’ of the Holocaust

In an apparent dig at Poland, President Reuven Rivlin says no country can “legislate their forgetting” of the Holocaust.

“Germany couldn’t buy the Jews forgiveness, just as no nation can legislate their forgetting [of the Holocaust],” says Rivlin.

“The Jewish people will always carry the banner of the struggle against anti-Semitism and racism. No political, diplomatic or political interest will cause us to ignore them, neither in Europe or anywhere else,” he adds.
