As Abbie Wightwick highlighted in her excellent article in today’s Western Mail, as we approach the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz it is the duty of the current generation to ensure that we pass on the story of the suffering and horror which the Holocaust produced.Auschwitz

I remember years ago driving twice a day past the gates of the Dachau Concentration Camp, as I prepared to go training for an international rowing event near Munich. A feeling of great sadness and fear would come over me as I passed what had been a terrifying camp for thousands of inmates housed there in the Second World War. Some friends had the courage to visit the camp and came back traumatised by the experience.

We must do all in our power to continue to ensure that the story of the inhumanity inflicted upon the Jewish Nation and countless others must never be allowed to be repeated or forgotten in the future.
