JNS.orgU.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited the remnants of the Auschwitz death camp for the first time in his current role, and walked under the notorious “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign to commemorate Holocaust victims.

“Nothing can truly prepare one for this epicenter of evil, where systematic murder unique in human history reached its atrocious climax,” Ban said, according to Reuters.

“The world must never forget, deny or downplay the Holocaust. We must remain ever on our guard,” he added. The last U.N. secretary-general who visited Auschwitz was Boutros Boutros-Ghali in 1995.
