Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann issue the following statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
Khan stated, “We honour millions of victims of Nazi Germany’s genocidal actions on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. My thoughts are with the victims and their families who still struggle with the aftermath of this horrific event.
“In commemoration of this day the United Nations stated, “The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say ‘never again.’”
Swann stated, “We must stand up against hateful ideology and violence against those who are different. We must strive to prevent history from repeating itself. We must never forget this tragedy.”
Khan added, “We should always fight back against all hateful rhetoric with compassion and understanding. We must be forever vigilant and dedicated to promoting equality, tolerance and inclusion.”
