Holocaust Memorial Day
Later in the year, the Young Fabians will be hosting a Holocaust survivor to offer testimony from one generation to another of the horrific crimes committed by the Nazis. 69 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, we encourage all of our members to take a moment to reflect on the millions of Jews killed on an industrial scale. We remember also the mass murder of the Romani, disabled, homosexuals and all others the Nazis deemed unworthy of life.
The sheer scale of brutality sometimes makes it hard to remember that each victim was an individual with his or her own story. Today, let's honour their memory and never forget.
Executive member, Alex Bjarnason, remembers Istvan Reiner and other victims in this touching piece.
