LOS ANGELES (AP) — Crimes against Jewish people are crimes against all humanity, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Sunday during an annual Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremony.

"We accept the Holocaust as a symbol of our duty and responsibility to prevent such travesties from ever happening again," said Schwarzenegger, a longtime supporter of Holocaust memorial efforts who also paid for an investigation into his father's Nazi past.

The event, which drew about 3,000 people to the Los Angeles Holocaust Monument in Pan Pacific Park, was held to remember the 6 million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis.
