    Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, the annual rememberance event now in its 6th year. The date is chosen, according to Wikipedia, because today is the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz by the Soviet Union in 1945. A poll published last week found:

    Nearly half of Britons believe a Holocaust could erupt in the UK, according to a YouGov survey. The poll of 2,400 Britons, released to coincide with Holocaust Memorial Day on January 27, found that 41% of people thought another Holocaust was possible and 36% believed most people would do nothing to stop it. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust’s chairman, Stephen Smith, described the findings as “alarming”. The survey also found that 79% were unaware that black people were persecuted by the Nazis, and 50% did not know that lesbians, gays, disabled people and the Roma were targeted.

    The human tendency to explain away hatred and bigotry still continues to alarm me, but only by continuing to remember such a huge blot on our collective history can we build a better future.
