Benedict XVI visits Rabbi Arthur Schneier in New York City (2008)
"... how can we but revolt at Holocaust-denial? Victims of the Holocaust have not given us the right to forgive the perpetrators nor the Holocaust deniers ... we must transmit "never again" through Holocaust education to future generations ..."
the Vatican’s representative to the United Nations, Archbishop Bernardito Auza
“Pope Francis is bestowing the honor on Rabbi Arthur Schneier, who has worked unceasingly to promote peace and mutual understanding, in the firm conviction that respect for fundamental human rights, including religious freedom, are indispensable values for all peoples of the world to enjoy peace, security and shared prosperity. A Holocaust survivor, Rabbi Schneier has always held this conviction in his heart and made it a principle of life.”
