[First Presidency message]
Since the Church is worldwide with many thousands of our members citizens of the enemy countries-members who deeply love their homeland, and who individually are no more responsible for this terrible holocaust than we have been-we feel it is essential that the Church as such should make its observance of "V-Day" of a character that would not grieve or wound the feelings of those whose mother country is one of the enemy states.

[Clark, James R., Messages of the First Presidency (6 volumes)]
