Chancellor Kurz Points Out Austria’s Responsibility for World War II

VIENNA -Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz on Friday delivered a speech timed with the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in which he recalled the responsibility of his own country for the events of 1939-1945.

“The horrors of National Socialism were so indescribable that we should make sure to draw our lessons from that time. This is especially true for Austria, because not only did we go through this war, but we also share responsibility for it,” Kurz said in his address, as broadcast by the Austrian ORF2 channel.

Memory is what it takes to respect that responsibility, according to the Austrian chancellor.
