David Supports Holocaust Memorial Day
“A Time To Remember”
On January 27th we remember all the victims of the Holocaust. By never forgetting the victims of this terrible event, and honouring the survivors and rescuers who are still with us, we reaffirm our shared goals of mutual understanding and justice.
We take this opportunity to recognise that humanity is still scarred by the belief that race or religion or disability or sexuality make some people’s lives worth less than others’. Genocide, anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia and discrimination still continue.
Furthermore, it is sad and regrettable that even now a small minority refuse to recognise the suffering of the Jewish peoples and the sheer enormity of the crimes carried out against them by Nazi Germany. This Day will remind them that even if they refuse to acknowledge these events, the rest of the world remembers.
This year’s Holocaust Memorial day has the theme “One Person Can Make a Difference”. On Friday 27th we should all consider what we can do as individuals to aid and better the lives of others around us, to examine the moral choices that we make and to remember that every person can make a monumental impact for the good of others.
