buenos aires herald. foreign ministry’s human rights secretary horacio méndez carreras first interview
The Foreign office decided to remove a controversial plaque from its premises. The plaque paid tribute to 12 Argentine diplomats for their actions ”for the Jews” during the Second World War. One of these diplomats is accused by community organizations to have done exactly the opposite.
Argentina’s Foreign Ministry is under scrutiny as historians, researchers, Jewish organizations and a broad swath of the country’s cultural elite demand the repeal of a controversial 1938 order prohibiting visas for Jews fleeing the Holocaust.
I am pleased to address you, and through you, all the members of your Institution, to express my appreciation for the praiseworthy task that you undertook that resulted in the removal of the controversial plaque which had been installed in the Argentine Foreign Ministry, which unjustly honoured an Argentine diplomat who had failed to uphold his unforsakable duty of safeguarding the most elementary human rights.

According to the Dictionary of the Royal Academy, the word holocaust means ”a huge slaughter of human beings”. Another entry reads: ”Among the Israelites, especially, it implied that the victims were burnt up”.
The word holocaust means a totally burned sacrifice. In the years between 1933 and 1945, it became Holocaust with a capital ”H,” defining the Nazi regime’s efforts to exterminate European Jewry. Survivors of the genocide are dwindling in number like grains of sand through an hourglass.
On Friday morning – in a room packed with Princeton High School students – Argentinean author José Ignacio Garcia Hamilton spoke about the wax and wane of liberty in South America.
