Generalversammlung verurteilt Leugnung des Holocausts

Heute hat die Generalversammlung die Leugnung des Holocausts verurteilt und damit den vor wenigen Tagen von den USA eingebrachten Resolutionsentwurf angenommen. Die Resolution wurde per Akklamation, also ohne formelle Abstimmung, angenommen, wobei der Iran dieser Abstimmung jedoch fern blieb.

Der komplette Text der Resolution lautet:

The General Assembly,

Reaffirming its resolution 60/7 of 1 November 2005,

Recalling that resolution 60/7 observes that remembrance of the Holocaust is
critical to prevent further acts of genocide,

Recalling also that, for this reason, resolution 60/7 rejects efforts to deny the
Holocaust, which by ignoring the historical fact of those terrible events increases
the risk they will be repeated,

Noting that all people and States have a vital stake in a world free of genocide,

Welcoming the establishment by the Secretary-General of a programme of
outreach on the subject of “the Holocaust and the United Nations”, and also
welcoming the inclusion by Member States within their educational programmes of
measures to confront attempts to deny or minimize the importance of the Holocaust,

Noting that 27 January has been designated by the United Nations as the
annual International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the
Holocaust,

1. Condemns without any reservation any denial of the Holocaust;

2. Urges all Member States unreservedly to reject any denial of the
Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, or any activities to this end.
