New medal for Holocaust survivors to keep ‘retelling’ the story of the murder of six million Jews 70 years ago

A medal struck by the Royal Mint to mark 70 years since the end of the Holocaust was unveiled last night, with the first presented to some of the dwindling number of survivors.
Chancellor George Osborne and Communities Secretary Eric Pickles, who commissioned the silver medal, said it was vital to keep ‘retelling’ the story of the murder of six million Jews.
The first of the run of medals were awarded to survivors and supporters of the Holocaust Education Trust in Downing Street last night, and a limited number will be on sale on the Royal Mint’s website.

REMEMBER THE HOLOCAUST ~ OR ELSE

"young Frenchmen and young Spaniards and young Swedes and young Swiss. They, too, must always remember.

So you are guilty and must never be allowed to forget, nor should your children be allowed to forget, if your grandfather "supported the Nazi regime"; you are also guilty and must never be allowed to forget, and your children should never be allowed to forget, if your grandfather merely failed to "oppose the Nazi regime."
