What happened to the Jewish people in the Nazi Holocaust was "the most heinous crime" against humanity in the modern era, Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas said in a statement Sunday.

He also expressed sympathy with the families of the victims in a statement in English which was released as Israel was to begin marking Holocaust remembrance day at sundown.
