ITF Norwegian chairmanship 2009 logo

The Chair of the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research (ITF) has registered that statements have been made during the current health care debate in the US making inappropriate references to the Holocaust in an attempt to influence the political deliberations. The Chair of the ITF condemns these statements as they trivialize the history and memory of the victims of the Holocaust which must be held sacred for future generations.
