Speakers’ Corner 27 January

Holocaust Memorial Day is 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.

Brooke Grant, one of our S6 Auschwitz Ambassadors, was in Speaker’s on Friday 27 January. She shared, with an attentive audience, what she and April , our other Auschwitz Ambassador, saw and what they heard, as well as what they learned from their visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Brooke was articulate and confident and talked about why she feels so passionately that the Holocaust should never forgotten.
