Holocaust Memorial Day

On Thursday 23 January Bob took part in the annual debate to remember the horror of the Holocaust.  He reminded the House of Commons that one purpose of remembering is to try and ensure that such events as the Holocaust don't happen again.  Sadly he recalled his own experiences in Bosnia during 1992 - 93 and in particular the Massacre of Ahmici in April 1993.  The attached photograph shows him at Ahmici condemning the murderers at a news conference.  He reminded everyone present that genocide and crimes against humanity continue to this day although everyone has to do all they can to stop them.
