This is a little off from my usual videos about Travel, Rugby and Korea – but I felt it really needed to be expressed especially since in our culture – we are subjected to racism and xenophobia on a daily basis.
Today is the 27th of January and today is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
We remember those who were subjected to the evils of the Holocaust and we also remember not just the Jews as I mention in this vlog but also the Homosexuals, the Sinti and Roma people, the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the mentally and physically disabled who died at the hands of the Nazi regime.
Back in 1945 everyone said “We will never forget” “We should ever let this happen” however since 1945, genocide still happens, and this is purely through racially motivated reasons and FEAR.
Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia are just some of the ones you’d remember. Even today in Syria it is happening.
We are all humans. We are all equal.
The World Jewish Congress recently put out a post asking people to put up a sign to say #WEREMEMBER because in our own society we have clearly forgotten the atrocities that happened just only 70 odd years ago.
