Idea Title:

Should LUU recognise and support Holocaust Memorial Day?

 

What the idea is about:

What the idea is about:

•          LUU to recognise Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) on its official calendar.

•          LUU to support the activities that take place on HMD, by coordinating with the Jewish Society and other relevant societies in terms of speakers, stalls and other activities.

•          LUU to publicise the events surrounding HMD.

 

Why have you proposed it?:

•          The Holocaust, the genocide perpetrated by Nazi Germany, killed 6 million Jews and 5 million people others including disabled and LGBTQ individuals, people of Roma descent and political opponents.

•          Holocaust Memorial Day is a national day of commemoration of those who perished in the Holocaust.

•          With only a few years left when survivors will be able to tell their experiences first-hand, it is vital that as many students as possible are able to hear their testimonies.
