U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice paid a ceremonial visit to the Children's Museum at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem today (Sunday, Feb. 6) and left this inscription in the guest book:

""This is a place that causes all to remember those who perished and to accept that it must never happen again that good men and women do not act." 

In a comment to the media following the visit, Rice briefly amplified:

"I want to say to those who have put together this remarkable memorial at Yad Vashem, that it does indeed call us to remember the six million who perished, each individually and collectively, to honor those who survived and those who lived to build the Jewish state of Israel. And also it obligates us to be certain that good men and women never again fail to act and to say: We shall never forget and never again."
