Russian President Vladimir Putin opened a memorial dedicated to the Jewish resistance in Nazi concentration camps and ghettos.

Standing on stage next to oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, the monument sponsor, and Chief Rabbi of Russia Berel Lazar, Putin said that the crimes of Holocaust will never be forgiven.

One of the members of World War Two time resistance Aaron Belsky greeted the officials and together with the Russian leader lit candles in front of the memorial wall.

The memorial is a creation of a Russian artist from the city of Saratov, Oleg Fandeyev, and will feature screens with information about Jewish resistance to Nazism.
