“Today we honour the memory of the six million

Jews who perished in the Holocaust – and the

many other victims of unprecedented,

calculated cruelty and horror.

This year’s observance falls amid an alarming

increase in anti-Semitism.

From a deadly assault on a synagogue in the

United States to the desecration of Jewish cemeteries

in Europe, this centuries-old hatred is not only

still strong – it is getting worse.

We see the proliferation of neo-Nazi groups, and

attempts to rewrite history and distort the

facts of the Holocaust.

We see bigotry moving at lightning

speed across the Internet.

As the Second World War recedes in time, and

the number of Holocaust survivors dwindles,

it falls to us to be ever vigilant.

And as the former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom,

Jonathan Sacks, so memorably said:

“The hate that begins with Jews never ends with Jews”.


Indeed, we see intolerance entering mainstream

politics -- targeting minorities, Muslims,

migrants and refugees, and exploiting

anger and anxiety of a changing world.

Now more than ever, let us unite in the fight

universal values and build a world of equality for all."

"The theme of the Holocaust remembrance and education activities this year is “Holocaust Remembrance: Demand and Defend Your Human Rights”. This theme encourages youth to learn from the lessons of the Holocaust, act against discrimination and defend democratic values

in their communities, at a time when the spread of

Neo-Nazism and hate groups fuels the rising

antisemitism and other forms of

hatred around the world. The theme

highlights the  70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide."
