Holocaust Memorial Day

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Jeff Cuthbert, has joined community and faith leaders at Gwent Police HQ to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, and those killed in genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

Jeff Cuthbert said: “I am honoured to stand together with community and faith leaders, and my police colleagues, to remember the millions who lost their lives in the Holocaust and later genocides.

“I want Gwent to be a place where people can live, work and visit without fear of experiencing hatred of any kind, including religious intolerance.

“Across the world political pressures and social and economic anxieties have caused an increase in community tension. Discrimination still occurs, so we must continue to promote and safeguard our principles of tolerance, inclusivity and equality.

“By working together we can build a more cohesive community, free from fear and hatred.”
