Prime Minister David Cameron has pledged £50 million of public funds towards a planned, new memorial to the victims of Nazi atrocities, to be erected in Victoria Tower Gardens by the Thames, next to the Palace of Westminster. Really? Is yet another memorial to the Holocaust really a wise move, especially with £50 million of taxpayers money, and at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise and social services are being cut? Hasn’t a Holocaust memorial already opened in Camden, north-west London? Remembrance and education centres certainly have their place in civilized society, but do they encourage rulers in less civilized countries to stop and think before slaughtering their own people? Definitely not! The Nuremberg Trials and recent Human Rights Conventions did not save the victims of the Bangladesh Genocide, 1971, the Cambodian Genocide, 1975-79, the Rwandan Genocide, 1994, or the Bosnian Genocide, 1992-95 or other acts of genocide that have yet to emerge!
