Obama's Statement On Yom HaShoah

Yesterday the White House released a statement (full text) from President Obama on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). The statement reads in part:
On this Yom HaShoah, I join people of all faiths in the United Sates, in the State of Israel, and around the world in remembering the six million Jews – innocent men, women and children – who were senselessly murdered during the Holocaust, as well as all the victims of Nazi brutality and violence.... [L]et us recommit ourselves to the task of remembrance, and to always oppose anti-Semitism wherever it takes root.
