Statement on Holocaust Memorial Day

Please read the following statement from Elizabeth May, MP for Saanich—Gulf Islands and Leader of the Green Party of Canada, recognising Holocaust Memorial Day:

”An honour to attend the Holocaust Memorial Day service at the Jewish cemetery in Victoria. Today I am thinking of the 6 million Jews who were systematically killed in the Shoah and the survivors who have given back so much to the communities across the world that took them in. The lessons of the Holocaust cannot be forgotten. We commemorate those lost not as statistics, but as unique individuals whose lives were cut far too short. Thanks to the Victoria Shoah Project for this annual and deeply moving event today.”
