Holocaust Memorial Day 2020

On this Holocaust Memorial Day of April, 19, 2020

Those who deny or ignore the Holocaust remain strangers to humanity.

Those who remember it,

Honour the memory of its victims,

Care for its survivors,

Continue the good fight with and for the Jewish people.

The Jewish people and those who also remember,

The genocidal killings of  other innocents,

The gypsies, the elderly, the physically disabled,

The mentally infirm and  fetuses

Honour their memory,

Continue the good fight with everyone for the sake of humanity.

Those who ignore or forget these genocides remain strangers to humanity.
