Mort Klein, national president of the Zionist Organization of America and a child of Holocaust survivors, praised President Donald Trump for his remarks on Holocaust Remembrance Day on Tuesday.

Trump said Tuesday that the Nazi genocide of European Jews during the Holocaust was "history’s darkest hour," according to the Washington Times.

"This is my pledge to you: we will confront anti-Semitism," Trump said while giving a speech at a U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum event. "Today we mourn, we remember, we pray and we pledge: Never again."

"As president of the United States, I will always stand with the Jewish people and I will always stand with our great friend and partner, the state of Israel," he said, according to The Hill.

Klein shared his thoughts on Holocaust Remembrance Day in a statement on the ZOA website.

Klein, the first child born in a displaced persons camp in Germany, opened up about his parents, who got married while living in the camps.

"I, Morton Klein, am a child of Holocaust survivors, born in a displaced persons camps in Gunzburg, Germany. My parents, Rabbi Herman from Volosk, Czechoslovakia and Sarah Klein, from Tomazov-Lubelski, Poland met in that DP camp and married," he said.

"I personally know full well the ultimate horrors that can culminate from breathtaking, mindless hatred," Klein added. "I lost all my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins on my father’s side. My mother lost over half of her family to Hitler and Eichmann’s diabolical nightmare. In addition, the Germans murdered gays, Jews, the mentally ill, the physically handicap, Gypsies, and others."
