"The fact that we live in peace doesn't mean that war can't return," Slovak Deputy Prime Minister Richard Rasi said at the Brookwood Military Cemetery in the United Kingdom on Wednesday marking the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings. "We live in times when nobody remembers the war any more. We often deal with petty problems that are far away from deciding between life and death," Rasi said, adding that it was often forgotten that around 60 million people died in the second world war. He said WW2 needed to remembered in order to prevent the rise of "extremist forces promoting fascism".
