The tendency to glorify Nazi criminals in the Baltic countries will help to identify the responsibility of these countries for some of the crimes committed by the Nazis, said historian Alexander Dyukov in Geneva at the 41st session of the UN Human Rights Council, TASS reported on July 10.
The policy of glorifying Nazi criminals by the Baltic countries will only help to identify responsibility for Nazi atrocities, Alexander Dyukov, head of the Historical Memory Foundation, said in his report.
Dyukov also reminded of the need to observe the provisions of the Terezin Declaration, adopted in June 2009, in which the need to return property to the Holocaust victims is stated, and various Nazi crimes are listed.
In turn, Mikhail Chernov, Chairman of the Foundation for the Support and Development of Jewish Culture, Traditions, Education and Science said it was a task of great importance and relevance to end glorification of Nazi ideology and its heroes in Europe and in other countries. He regretfully stated that there are countries within the European Union where Nazi heroes’ glorification is part of the state agenda.
Chernov also stressed the importance of this report at the Geneva international platform, since the relevance of the topic, oddly enough, is only growing every year. Mikhail Chernov called on crushing fascists by legal means wherever possible.
