Earlier today, as The Daily Wire noted, Vice President Mike Pence was in Jerusalem, Israel to attend the World Holocaust Forum. This year’s Forum is themed around the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazis’ infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
“Vice President Mike Pence delivered a stirring speech in Jerusalem before an audience that included world leaders and Holocaust survivors, vowing that never again shall the world allow the atrocities committed by the Nazis to be repeated,” Fox News reported. “Pence spoke on behalf of the United States, joined by leaders of more than 40 nations, at Israel’s Yad Vashem World Holocaust Remembrance Center, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.”
Pence, a devout Christian who previously served as Indiana governor and a U.S. congressman from the Hoosier State, is a longtime friend of the Jewish people and a staunch supporter of the Jewish state of Israel.
