French President Francois Hollande urged vigilance against resurgent anti-Semitism and racism, as he visited a former gas chamber on Sunday to honour Jews, Gypsies and French resistance fighters who died in the only Nazi concentration camp on French soil.
"The worst can still happen. Anti-Semitism and racism are still here," Hollande said at the Natzweiler-Struthof camp in Alsace, at a ceremony marking 70 years since the last Nazi camps were liberated by Allied troops in WWII.
Hollande, whose country is still tense after terrorist attacks on a kosher supermarket and newspaper in January, decried the "atrocities" at the camp.
"We must not forget anything," he said.
