From Bucharest: Some photos from the meeting

C. Christian Kennedy, U.S. Special Envoy for the Holocaust issues in conversation with Jeremy Katz, Special Assistant to President Bush for Policy. Christian Kennedy handles property restitution issues among other matters. Jeremy Katz works on domestic policy has well as being the special liaison to the Jewish community.

Malcolm Honelein paying rapt attention to the proceedings.

Immediately after speaking on behalf of the USA at the session on Holocaust education. I noted that Holocaust education, while crucial, is NOT an antidote against prejudice, discrimination or intolerance. I also spoke about how impressive the materials on the Holocaust which have been prepared by the OSCE/ODIHR in that they are country specific.
