UN information officers educated on history of Holocaust





NEW YORK -- United Nations information officers will be given lessons this week on the history of the Holocaust, it was announced Monday, continuing a trend by the world organization to recognize the mass murder of Jews during World War II.

Employees of the UN's public information department on Monday began a week-long program of discussion with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington under a program known as "Holocaust and UN outreach program."

The seminar in Washington dealt with the history of the Holocaust, which calls for confronting hatred, preventing genocide and cultivating moral responsibility.
