Anniversaries of and Holocaust It is in this sense that the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising has a universal significance. It is also a lasting symbol of a battle which, lost in its first stage, has developed into a triumph for justice over tyranny." The event was sponsored by the Canadian Jewish Congress in cooperation with the Association of Bergen Belsen Survivors, the Association of Survivors of Nazi Oppression, the B'nai B'rith, the Federation of Polish Jews, the Labor Zionist movement, Miz-rachi, the Zionist Organization of Canada and many synagogue and fraternal organizations. In Rio, Too In Rio de Janeiro, Governor Negrao deLima of the state of Guanabara and a representative of President Costa e Silva were among the 2,000 persons who participated in ceremonies here commemorating the 24th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and the murder of 6,000,000 Jews in the Nazi holocaust. JERUSALEM (JTA) President Zalman Shazar participated along with thousands of other Israelis here in memorial ceremonies on Mount of Memory for the 6,000,000 Jews killed during the Nazi holocaust. Addressing the ceremony, Education Minister Zalman Aranne said that what had happened during the Nazi holocaust "can never be forgotten." Similar ceremonies were held last night atop Mount Zion and in many other parts of the country. Addressing one of the gatherings at Nahlat Yitzhak Cemetery on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, Prime Minister Levi Eshkol warned against the recrudescence of anti-Semitism in any part of the world. He said that Israel alone cannot serve as a bulwark against anti-Semitism. In special ceremonies, the Premier pinned medals on several hundred members of the Fighters Against Nazism organization, escapees who had fought often against armed Nazi murderers.
