Holocaust Memorial Day 2015: The 70th Anniversary Of The Liberation of Auschwitz

It was almost three years ago that I visited the town of Oswiecim in Poland where the infamous Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz is situated.

I went on the trip with the Holocaust Educational Trust who are an exceptional organisation who work tirelessly in trying to make sure the Holocaust is not forgotten and that lessons are learned from it.

That last point is vital to make sure it doesn’t happen again. You may say, “of course mass genocide won’t happen again. Not in this day and age.” However, that eventuality is far more likely and easier to come about than you think.

In fact, mass genocides have been fairly rife since the Holocaust of the Jews in the 1930s and 1940s.

I received an email today which contained the plans put forward by the UK’s Holocaust Commission and accepted by Prime Minister David Cameron.

I thought I’d share with you what action is going to be taken in order to remember the Holocaust.
