AM marks National Holocaust Memorial Day

Labour AM for the Vale of Clwyd, Ann Jones has marked Holocaust Memorial Day by calling on fellow Assembly Members to join her in calling for an end to persecution and racial hatred.

Ms Jones said: “We must never forget those who died and suffered at the hands of Nazi persecution and other genocides across the world.

“Holocaust Memorial Day gives us the opportunity to remember those lost their lives to the scourge of racial hatred. Anti-Semitism has no place in the modern world and we must always challenge ignorance and bigotry.

“It is crucial that everyone remembers the horrors of past so that we can ensure that the most atrocious act of genocide are never repeated.

“Today, I am calling on fellow Assembly Members to join with me and stand up against prejudice and discrimination”.

Ms Jones has tabled a statement of opinion calling for AMs to pledge their support for Holocaust Memorial Day.
