We must never forget the horror of the Holocaust – Maskey
Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey has said the genocide and horrors of the Holocaust must never be forgotten
"Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, which commemorates one of the most horrific crimes in history,” said Paul Maskey.
"The planned genocide and extermination of the Jewish population carried out the Nazi regime during the Second World War was one of the darkest crimes against humanity..
"Over six million Jewish men women and children were murdered.
“Up to five million others, including members of the Roma community, and groups and individuals who spoke out or tried to resist fascism, were also murdered in Nazi concentration camps.
"We must never forget the horror of the Holocaust and in other more recent genocides in Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur and we must unite to challenge fascism, sectarianism, racism, anti-Semitism and homophobia wherever it occurs in our society.”
