[JURIST] The UN General Assembly opened its 28th Special Session [official website] Monday commemorating the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Jews from Nazi death camps. Various world leaders and Nobel Laureate author Elie Wiesel [biography], a World War II death camp survivor, spoke at the session. Speakers remembered the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust and how the UN [official website] was formed to stop such future tragedies. However, Wiesel and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan [official website] both questioned the will of the nations of the world to stop future mass murders citing Rwanda, Darfur, and Bosnia. A purpose of the commemoration was to downplay the notion that the UN General Assembly is anti-Semitic. However, there were clear signs of divisions as most of the Arab world did not participate.
