The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Seventy years af­ter VE Day, White­hall will close on Sun­day for the an­nual AJEX pa­rade. There are few more im­por­tant — and mov­ing — oc­ca­sions in the communal cal­en­dar, as we re­mem­ber those who served their coun­try in the de­fence of free­dom. Too many gave their lives; too many are now no longer with us sim­ply be­cause of the pas­sage of time. But Sun­day’s pa­rade is not only about re­mem­brance, vi­tal as that is. AJEX also ex­ists to help those in need to­day, and to ed­u­cate the next gen­er­a­tion. We must never forget.
