Statement on International Holocaust Memorial Day

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

“International Holocaust Remembrance Day marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945. Over six million Jews were killed in the Shoah, as well as Romani, people with disabilities, Slavs, 2SLGBTQ+ people and political opponents. Events this fall in Parliament reminded all Canadians of the need for Holocaust education. We must never forget the singular evil represented by the Nazi regime and its “final solution”.”
