Holocaust Memorial Day.
January 27th is Holocaust Memorial Day, and many of you may think that it is just about remembering all of those who perished at the hands of the Nazis in WW2, but its much more than that. It is about those who have perished all over the World due to Genocide which some people may think is something confined to history…..
Unfortunately, that is not the case and in certain areas of the world persecution and genocide still exists today, and yet understandably many people equate Genocide to the activities of WW2 It is absolutely right and proper we should never ever forget about those who lost their lives, their families, their dignity in the most appalling way and on the 27th January it is right and proper that we reflect and remember.
At the moment its really hard and difficult all over the world, and its easy to forget about the past, but imagine having your family rounded up without any notice, being transported and interned, stripped of all your possessions, separated from your children, starved and then ultimately killed. Hard to imagine?
And this is exactly why it must never be forgotten ….
As a Child I had a history teacher and he always said “The key to the Future is always in Past” and in my life time I have lost count of how many times he was right.
