Holocaust Memorial Day

Last Friday, we remembered the millions of lives lost during the terror and tyranny of the holocaust. It has been 63 years since this tragedy happened.

In 1939, Britain and France declared war upon Germany because their racist leader, Adolf Hitler, invaded Poland. This began a grievous war that tore apart families and wrecked countless homes, leaving tens of thousands starving and homeless.

 Hitler persecuted groups he felt were inferior, including Jews, disabled people,black people, gay people and communists. Holocaust Memorial Day serves to remember this terrible event so we never repeat it.
