Paris - Amid worries about rising nationalism, French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron is visiting the Holocaust Memorial in Paris with a somber message: never again.

Excitement at his appearance mixed with tears of sorrowful remembrance for visitors as the centrist Macron walked past panels bearing the names of tens of thousands of French Jews deported to their death in Nazi camps. Holocaust survivors and children of its victims were among those present on Sunday.

Macron also looked at documentation showing the collaboration by French authorities with the Nazis.

It’s the second time in three days that Macron is visiting a site tied to France’s wartime history. He is seeking to remind voters of the anti-Semitic past of his rival Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Front.

The two face off in a May 7 presidential runoff.

We'll see. Meanwhile, your assertions - as usual - are baseless.
