Ballycastle SDLP Councillor Dónal Cuuningham has urged as many people as possible to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (27 January)and to remember  the victims of the Holocaust and other subsequent genocides.

Holocaust Memorial Day provides an opportunity for everyone to learn lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future. This is our opportunity to share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution throughout the world today.

As anti-Semitism, racism and prejudice are still present in society – this Memorial Day gives us the opportunity to reflect on the evil that was perpetrated during the Holocaust and pledge to create a safer, brighter future for all.

 “It is an important opportunity to remember not only the victims of the Holocaust but subsequent genocides. I would therefore encourage as many people as possible to mark the day and to join the fight against prejudice and intolerance..”
