Holocaust remembrance gives somber opening to Oklahoma City bombing anniversary
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

OKLAHOMA CITY Holocaust survivors and victims of the Oklahoma City bombing stood side-by-side Sunday for a ceremony to remember the six (m) million Jewish people killed in the Holocaust.

It was the first in a series of events to commemorate the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The anniversary of the explosion is Tuesday.

The blast ten years ago killed 168 people. And at the event Sunday a Jewish leader told the crowd "Killing in the name of what you believe is never justified _ not in Oklahoma, not in Israel, not anywhere in the world."

Bomber Timothy McVeigh was convicted of federal conspiracy and murder charges and executed in 2001. Conspirator Terry Nichols is serving multiple life sentences on federal and state charges.
