Terri Butler MP expresses support for the Jewish community as its members commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, today.
“Today, the Jewish community remembers and commemorates the loss of six million Jews who perished between 1941 and 1945,” Ms Butler said.
“This day reminds all of us, Jewish or not, of the need to remain vigilant in the face of bigotry, racism, and fascism.
“We must remain ever vigilant, and never let hate or bigotry become normalised or accepted.
“We must continue to work towards a truly multicultural and inclusive society,” Terri Butler said.
Ms Butler will attend the Yom HaShoah commemoration at the Jewish Chapel at Mt Gravatt Cemetery on Sunday, 15 April.
