Holocaust Memorial Day 27TH January 2014

LESS WE FORGET: Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January each year. It’s a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On HMD we can honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
HMD is a time when we seek to learn the lessons of the past and to recognise that genocide does not just take place on its own, it’s a steady process which can begin if discrimination, racism and hatred are not checked and prevented. We’re fortunate here in the Spain; we are not at risk of genocide. However, discrimination has not ended, nor has the use of the language of hatred or exclusion. There is still much to do to create a safer future and HMD is an opportunity to start this process.

  1. Sorry Maurice I know you asked me to ignore TJ but his misleading statement this morning has to be put correct. He states that the Muslim Council of Great Britain has boycotted today Holocaust services. That' total rubbish (as usual) Now for the truth: On 3 December 2007, the MCB voted to end the boycott. Assistant General Secretary Inayat Bunglawala argued it was 'inadvertently causing hurt to some in the Jewish community'. Today the senior member of the MCB Dr Shuja Shafi will attend the event in London.

  3. Sorry Maurice last word on this: What a liar you are TJ. Let me give you an example of your continued lies. You wrote: I AM AFRAID YOUR STATEMENT IS TOTAL RUBBISH AND A LIE. PLEASE READ THE ABOVE STATEMENT OF MINE IT DOES NOT SAY ANYWHERE THAT THE mcb would not be attending the 2014 commemoration. Here is the lie: ' Read the above statement of MINE, MINE. Not one word of the statement was written by you. Again lies and yet again more lies.
