MEMORIAL: Annette Brooke signs the Book of Commitment

First published in News

MID Dorset and North Poole MP Annette Brooke recently signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in the House of Commons.

This document honours those who were killed during the Holocaust and survivors of the atrocity who now work to educate people about the horrors they endured.

Mrs Brooke signed the book last month on Holocaust Memorial Day, which marks the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

She also called for “all constituents to mark the day and to join members of my community in the fight against prejudice and intolerance”.

One would have thought that those closest to the survivors of the Nazi Holocaust (The Jewish people) would be fighting very strongly against "prejudice and intolerance" but (apart from Jewish Voices for Peace) there appears to be little evidence of such effort when it comes to living with their neighbours in the Holy Land. Creating ghettos by erecting the monstrous concrete walls indicates quite the reverse - a preference for separation and denigration.

Is there room for hope ? I trust there is but such faith is hard in the absence of evidence. Guess that is why Faith is faith and why nobody should be allowed to forget the lessons that have been given and why everybody should be encouraged to avoid making the same mistakes !

Thank you Annette. There is much to be done.

Well that was very decent of her and we all know the serious atrocities that do go on in war time, so I do somewhat wonder why she never voted against intervention in Syria which was fortunately outvoted without her vote.
