Holocaust Remembrance Day
Today is the day marked for reflection and memory of those who died tragically in one of the most infamous crimes against humanity: The Holocaust. It did not help that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill refused to lift the U.S. and U.K.’s immigration barriers to allow people, like the Jews in Europe, to escape Adolph Hitler’s Final Solution.
Sadly, the seeds of obliviousness to such moral crimes has taken root in Europe. Anti-Semitism has increased in parts of the continent. Fueled not just by the rise of pro-Nazi groups but also Muslim immigration to the region which has fed the rise of Leftist anti-Semitism. It is my sincere hope that the voice of those who survived this humanitarian tragedy and the truth surrounding it will never be silenced nor forgotten.
