U.N. Secretary-General Says Neo-Nazism Is on the Rise, Spurred by Pandemic

HeadlineJan 27, 2021

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres is urging global action against the spread of neo-Nazism and white supremacy, which he says has proliferated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Guterres spoke at the U.N. Holocaust Remembrance Service. Today marks the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Secretary-General António Guterres: “Anti-Semitism continues to blight our world. It is sad, but not surprising, that the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered yet another eruption of this poisonous ideology. We can never let down our guard.”
