Holocaust Memorial Day 2024

26th January 2024

Acting Police and Crime Commissioner Eleri Thomas has paid tribute to the millions of victims who were killed during the Holocaust.

Speaking in advance of Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January, she said: “The aim of Holocaust Memorial Day is to bring people together to remember the millions of people that were murdered in the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides across the world.

“It is now more important than ever that we continue to safeguard our principles of tolerance, inclusion and equality. We have made great strides towards these ideals within our own communities here in Gwent, but we must do more. Every one of us has a responsibility to ensure that hate and intolerance do not prevail in society. We must take a stand and call out these behaviours whenever and wherever we see them.”
