On that day in 1945 the few survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp were released.

"Every generation must learn and apply the lessons of the Holocaust to prevent new horrors against humanity from occurring", he said.

Museum officials also read a letter from Dr. Muhammad Al-Issa, secretary-general of the Muslim World League based in Saudi Arabia, who wrote, "Who in their right mind would accept, sympathize or even diminish the extent of this brutal crime?"

The first lady tweeted that she experienced a "powerful and moving tour", using the hashtag #WeRemember and including photographs of her lighting a candle at the Prayer Wall.

In Warsaw, Poland, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson paid his respects in a solemn ceremony at a memorial to the Jews who died revolting against German forces in the doomed Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. As I have said: "We will stamp out prejudice".

The White House released a statement Friday commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a worldwide day of reflection and remembrance for the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust.

Elderly Holocaust survivors wearing striped scarves that recalled their uniforms as prisoners of Nazi Germany made a yearly pilgrimage to Auschwitz on Saturday, exactly 73 years after the Soviet army liberated the death camp in occupied Poland. She also issued a statement on her visit, which also took note of the "six million Jews lost in the Holocaust and the millions of other victims of Nazi persecution".

The anti-migrant, anti-Muslim AfD party won seats in the German parliament for the first time a year ago, while in Austria the nationalist, anti-migrant Freedom Party is in the government.

It is important to remember the millions of Holocaust victims because "anti-Semitism, racism and the hatred of others are more relevant" recently, Merkel said in her weekly podcast on Saturday.

This, in contrast to the White House's statement on last year's International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which came under sharp criticism for omitting any reference to the Jewish people or anti-Semitism. Administration officials said the statement's aim was to honor all victims of the Holocaust, not just the Jews.
