Event Date: 20th January 2022
Holocaust and Genocide
from Nazi Germany to Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur to Nuclear Mutually
Destruction, will we ever learn?
We have decided to devote our January meeting to discussing this topic as just a few days later, on the 27th, the world will mark Holocaust Memorial Day. There will be no shortage of important persons telling us it must never happen again and, of course, we agree. But our two speakers will explore the issues and make some important links in ways that should prompt us to reflect more widely on the subject.
Daniel Scharf, a Peace Group member whose father was a holocaust survivor, will speak about his father, and about Nuclear MADness at Upper Heyford former USAF base. (See also page 2).
Rebecca Tinsley, a genocide expert, will talk about the factors leading to genocide, with particular reference to Rwanda and Darfur, and will draw the parallels between the conditions in the 1930s and the stages leading to genocide ever since then.
The UK Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 will be streamed online on Thursday 27 January at 7pm. Register at www.hmd.org.u
