Statement by NDP Leader Nycole Turmel on International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today marks the 67th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, one of the largest Nazi death camps. The United Nations declared this day as International Holocaust Remembrance Day so that we have the opportunity to honour the memory of Holocaust victims.

We will never forget the evil that fuelled the cruel deaths of millions of innocent people. That is why I join Canadians from all walks of life in remembering the tragedies and continuing to fight against intolerance and hatred.

Lest we forget.
