The 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day, and 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
In the week leading up to this anniversary, we at Saffron join the international effort to ensure that humanity continues to remember all those who suffered.
Let us all approach the political and cultural challenges of the new year with a proverb from Germany in mind: 'Beware the beginnings'. Across Europe, let's be united by our shared humanity and stand firm against anyone who seeks to divide us.
Let's take a moment to remember and together ensure that the horrors of the Second World War and the Holocaust are never seen again.
