BELGRADE - Power-wielders are attempting to rewrite history, but Serbia must not let that happen, President Tomislav Nikolic said Friday as Serbia marked the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Sometimes we are reprimanded that we are too focused on history and that we should turn to the future, but such advice usually comes from those who never faced their past in an honest way, Nikolic said at Staro Sajmiste, the site of a WWII concentration camp for Serbs, Jews and Roma.
