Long-time champion of women survivors and victims of crime, Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner Chris Cutland will be today (Holocaust Memorial Day) urging people everywhere to stand up against hate crime, discrimination and racism.
She will be speaking at Nottinghamshire Police's Holocaust Memorial event at force headquarters in Arnold, Ms Cutland said it will be a day to "honour the survivors of regimes of hatred and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today."
In remembering the millions of people killed in the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, she said genocide could begin if discrimination, racism and hatred were not checked and prevented.
Also speaking at the event will be Phil Lyons, CEO of the Holocaust Centre in Laxton; Bob Norton, a refugee from Czechoslovakia; and Amdani Juma, a Rwanda genocide survivor.
