Holocaust Memorial Day (27 Jan 2022)

Fleur Anderson: ...are scattered around the world. It is that shockwave of pain that is behind all the stories and all the numbers we are talking about today.

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...Lordships’ House, perhaps the only one, who has some direct experience, and indeed shared collective responsibility, of having failed to avert not one but two genocides—those in Rwanda and at Srebrenica—when I was Britain’s representative at the UN Security Council. Those were genocides that met the Government’s —in my view—narrow and legalistic criterion of being so judged...
