Mr. Speaker, this monument is obviously a monument for the Holocaust but it is so much more. It is a monument to those who fought in World War II, for the many who went over and were killed in that war, the families of the victims of that war. It honours the men and women in uniform today. I believe it honours the survivors of the Holocaust, and others who also face racism and anti-Semitism. I believe this monument will be appreciated by many Canadians in many different ways.
