Israel is to make public previously-unreleased documents relating to the executed Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann. The papers include a plea for clemency, in which it argues that his role in organising the mass extermination of Jews was exaggerated. The documents will be presented at a ceremony to mark International Holocaust Memorial Day. Olivia Marks-Woldman is from the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust."The Holocaust has been described as it is an event that shook the foundations of civilisation. I think that is a very powerful phrase. The fact that it happened threatened who we are as civilised human beings living together in a society. So in an obvious itself, it is worthy of remembrance that six million Jewish people were annihilated." _______________________________________________. World news from the BBC. 以色列將公布此前未曾對外披露的有關納粹戰爭罪犯阿道夫?艾希曼的相關文件.這其中包含了一份寬刑請求,這份請求申辯稱其在組織大規模屠殺猶太人行動中的作用被夸大.這份文件將在國際大屠殺紀念日的一場的典禮上展出.來自大屠殺紀念日信托基金的奧利維?亞馬克思-伍德曼說道:"大屠殺被描述為一場震動人類文明基礎的事件.我認為這是一個很有力量的表達方式.事實上,這個事件威脅到了我們作為文明的人類能夠共同生存于同一個社會的概念.所以很顯然,這場600萬猶太民眾被屠殺的浩劫值得被人們銘記." ___________________________________. 這是BBC帶來的國際新聞.
