French President Emmanuel Macron decried the resurgence of anti-semitism during a speech at the 5th World Holocaust Forum entitled 'Remember the Holocaust, fighting anti-Semitism' at the Warsaw Ghetto Square in Yad Vashem on Thursday.

"We must have the unity of the international community, Europe, today in our democracies, because after all anti-Semitism is resurging violently, brutally," said Macron.

The French president continued adding, "I am saying this unequivocally - anti- Semitism is not only a problem of the Jews, no, not at all. It is first and foremost a problem of the others," Macron said.

"Yes, we are here today, we have convened today because with in the face of this new anti-Semitism we should never give up. We should continue fighting," Macron continued.
