A day for non-Jews

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Prob­a­bly the most im­por­tant point about Holo­caust Me­mo­rial Day is that it is not for Jews. Not specif­i­cally for Jews, we should say. The mem­ory and lessons of the Shoah are uni­ver­sal, which is why HMD car­ries such weight. As Ian Austin writes on page 49, even in a town like Dudley, which has al­most no Jewish tra­di­tion, HMD now draws hun­dreds and res­onates across the com­mu­nity. It is a som­bre day, but a wel­come one.
