It Only Took 60 Years

The U.N. commemorated the Holocaust for the first time ever today in New York.

"The meeting was requested by U.S. Ambassador John Danforth in a letter on Dec. 9, and backed by Russia, the European Union, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Annan polled member states and 138 nations in the 191-member assembly agreed."

Check my math but 53 nations voted against commemorating the Holocaust. I'll see if I can find out who those were and get back to you. In the meantime, no guessing.
