Wide shot United Nations (UN) General Assembly 2. SOUNDBITE (English): Dan Gillerman, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations: "Ladies and gentleman as we gather here today, night is descending on Jerusalem and the Jewish Sabbath is unfolding as well so it is from here, from this world stage that I say this eve of Shabbat prayer...(says Hebrew prayer)" 3. Zoom in audience in General Assembly 4. Close-up pictures of Holocaust victims 5. UPSOT (English): Voice-over: "Sonia was a child of Issac and Rachel Drozinski, of Zagreb in Yugoslavia.

She was three years old." 5. Wide shot choir in General Assembly 6. Close-up man in choir singing Hebrew song 7. Wide shot audience applauding 8. SOUNDBITE (English): Professor Yehuda Bauer, Academic: "Certainly the Holocaust shows the depth of human depravity, but on its margins there are the peaks of human self sacrifice for others. It is that that shows us that there is an alternative, that the attempts made at the prevention of genocides, as for instance by the office of the special advisor for genocide prevention of the Secretary General of the United Nations and by various NGO's and governments, are not a hopeless task." New York - 26 January 2006 9. Wide shot of candlelight vigil ceremony 10. Close-up of Cantor Malovany praying 11.

I am here with a very lovely dividend, my granddaughter Arian, who will light the candle in memory of the 6 (m) million victims" 13. Wide pan audience STORYLINE: The U.N. observed the first day of commemoration for Holocaust victims on Friday, with calls for learning from the past and a warning of what may come in the future. "We remember the sacrifice of the victims, we salute the courage of the survivors, many of whom are in this hall, as their numbers dwindle while the Holocaust turns from a memory to becoming history," said Israel Ambassador to the U.N. Dan Gillerman addressed the General Assembly, asking them to make sure that the "holocaust turns from a memory to becoming history". In November the General Assembly adopted the resolution marking January 27, the day the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated in 1945, as International Day of Commemoration for Holocaust victims. On Thursday, a candle-light vigil was held at the United Nations, in connection with an international day of commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. Roman Kent, a survivor of Auschwitz, brought his granddaughter to the vigil to light a candle, in remembrance of all the Jews that perished under Nazi rule. Friday's ceremonies came four days after Iran said it would follow through with plans to organise a conference on what it terms the "scientific evidence" for the Holocaust.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Steven Ludsin, Member of Board that established museum and child of Holocaust survivor: "There is a Yiddish song, "mir zaynen do" which means "we are still here" and that alone is a major statement because there was a period that they didn't know they were going to live." 22. Tilt down of family taking photograph in front of museum STORYLINE: Thousands of Holocaust survivors, rescuers and their children gathered in Washington, D.C. this weekend for the largest reunion since the opening of the city's Holocaust Museum in 1993. A poignant backdrop to the reunion was the frailty of many of the survivors and their wish to pass to following generations the story of what had happened to them during the Second World War. Traveling from California, Klara Halberstadt came to the museum with her niece. She was newly married and just 22 years old when she was rounded up by the Nazis and sent to the Auschwitz concentration camp. Klara Halberstadt lost everyone in her family apart from her sister. More than 6-thousand people from four generations of survivors attended the two-day reunion. Organisers understood that this event marks one of the last times the Holocaust survivor's generation would be able to gather with their descendants to recall their shared history. One of the tribute events was a Survivor Village - where survivors and their families can reunite and meet old friends. Even more than sixty years after the concentration camps, survivors still hope for information about their families. Deborah Long, with her mother Felicia Galas who came from Lodz Poland and fifteen year old daughter, continues to this day to look for more information on what happened to her immediate family. Speaking alongside her daughter, Felicia Galas said she had lost everyone in her immediate family and to this day she condemned the world for standing by and letting the genocide happen. Marking the tenth anniversary of the museum, Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel said it had allowed those who did not experience first hand the tragedy of the Holocaust to have a glimpse into what it was like. Wiesel stressed the importance of remembering the survivor's trials during and after their stays in the concentration camps. Steven Ludsin, who was on the board that helped establish the United States Holocaust Museum and is a child of a survivor, said the reunion was critical because of the toll time was taking on the eye witnesses themselves. For many attending the reunion, it was a time for several generations to reflect together on the importance of family history.

Various of video showing Korman family members dancing at Auschwitz concentration camp together with their grandfather, Holocaust survivor, Adolek Kohn (music - "I will survive" by Gloria Gaynor) STORYLINE: A spokesman for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum commented on Friday on a controversial internet video of a Holocaust survivor dancing with his family inside the former Nazi concentration camp to a seventies pop song. "Different people express their respect and the memory of the victims in different ways," Jaroslaw Mensfelt said. But he added that "the largest annihilation place in the world should not be a background for art performances regardless of their noble aims." The video clip of Adolek Kohn awkwardly shuffling and shimmying with his daughter and grandchildren to the sound of "I Will Survive" at Auschwitz and other sites where millions (m) died during the Holocaust has become an Internet sensation. It's also sparking debate over whether the images show disrespect for those who perished - or are an exuberant celebration of life. The fight - raging on Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere - poses uncomfortable questions about how to approach one of history's greatest tragedies: What's the "proper" way to commemorate it? Can a survivor pay homage in a way that might be unthinkable for others? Adding to the irony, Kohn and his dancing brood owe their fame to neo-Nazi groups who posted the clip on their websites and turned it viral, his daughter told The Associated Press on Thursday. The 4?-minute video opens with the 89-year-old Kohn, his daughter Jane Korman and three grandchildren dancing near the infamous railroad tracks leading to Auschwitz. The group then moves to other Holocaust locations across Poland and Germany, including the notorious "Arbeit Macht Frei" ("Work sets you free") sign at Auschwitz's entrance, Poland's Lodz ghetto and the Dachau concentration camp. In one eerie shot, with his family behind him, Kohn presses his face to the small opening in a cattle car of the type that transported so many to their deaths. In another, he raises his arms and leads the troupe in a conga line to the pulsating disco beat of the Gloria Gaynor song. Kohn, shown at one point wearing a white T-shirt emblazoned with the word "Survivor" and flashing a V-for-victory sign, told Australia's Nine Network he didn't think the video was offensive because the dance was distinct from the memory of those who died. Korman, a Melbourne-based artist now visiting Israel, filmed the clip during a trip she took with her father, four children and a niece last summer to Kohn's native Poland, and to places in Germany and the Czech Republic where he once lived. The clip was posted on YouTube in January, but didn't attract attention until several weeks ago after neo-Nazi groups put it on their websites, she said. It originally was part of a video installation Korman presented in Melbourne last December. By Wednesday, the clip had drawn more than 500,000 hits and numerous comments. On Thursday, YouTube replaced it with a message saying it had been removed due to copyright issues. Other versions were still available, and the clip was also circulating on Facebook and Twitter. In Israel, home to the largest concentration of Holocaust survivors, the video has received scant attention. Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial had no comment. In Germany, however, it was widely shown on TV and other media outlets and circulated on the Internet, where many, mostly young people, expressed support.
