UK: Holocaust memorial removes references to Jews, highlights Muslim role in saving people

What did you expect in todays shattered, staggering, dhimmi Britain, where the next Prime Minister could be openly antisemitic and pro-jihad? The UCU has apologized, but would it have done so if no one had said anything?
Why did UKs Holocaust memorial events remove references to Jews?, by Seth J. Frantzman, Jerusalem Post, October 4, 2019:
The University College Union in the United Kingdom sent an email to branches that excluded mention of Jews among the groups persecuted during the Holocaust. According to The Jewish Chronicle, the UCU has since apologized. However, in a review of several websites connected to upcoming commemorations of Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, which will be held on January 27, references to Jews appear to be too often missing.
In the case of the UCU, a long list of those persecuted were mentioned, just not Jews. This included members of trade unions and Roma and black people, as well as gays and lesbians and Jehovahs Witnesses. In addition, non-Jewish Poles, were mentioned but not Jews. The UKs special envoy for post-Holocaust issues, Eric Pickles, said the incident sends a chilling message.
But the problem is much larger than just the UCU. Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 is already being wrapped into the easier to pronounce acronym HMD 2020, which in itself removes the word Holocaust. On some websites, such as the Holocaust Memorial Day Trusts page devoted to 75 memorial flames, it is clearly noted that the Holocaust was the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jews of Europe. However, a press release from April about the HMD 2020 theme, called Standing Together, doesnt mention the word Jew. The press release, also at the Trusts website, notes that HMD 2020 will also include marking the 25th anniversary of the Genocide in Bosnia. It is interesting that while Bosnia is mentioned, the place that the Shoah began in Germany is conveniently left out, lest anyone recall it was Germany that began the Holocaust and was largely responsible for it.
The April press release of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust notes that it is calling people to Stand Together in memory of the millions of people affected by the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and more recent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. The UCU seems to have used similar language as part of the Stand Together campaign.
The language here notes that the day explores how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalizing certain groups. The website now says that the Holocaust was the systematic murder of six million Jews across Europe. However, a PDF for planning events doesnt include the word Jew. The same pamphlet, when discussing the Rwandan genocide, mentions an estimated 1 million Tutsis and moderate Hutus who were murdered. It also mentions the Kindertransport of Jewish children but doesnt mention that they were Jewish. If they had been Bosnian or Tutsi, who are mentioned in the flier, they might have gotten a mention.
A review of other sites related to the HMD 2020 and Stand Together events reveals that Jews seem to be systematically excluded from discussions about the Holocaust .
The PDF itself doesnt mention that six million Jews were murdered, which means those downloading some of the material for the 2020 events are given inadequate information, even when the research shows people dont know how many were murdered. The PDF highlights Albanian Muslims, alone among mentions of various groups in Europe, for saving Jews. While the flier doesnt mention any Christian beliefs, it notes that strong Muslim and ethical beliefs were responsible for Albanians saving Jews. It neglects to mention that many Albanians are also Christian.
Remember the moslems sided with hitler during WWII... why are we bending over backwards for nazi lovers.
This is so disturbing.
Some people did some things.
This is so as to not offend the UK’s new masters. The UK is full dhimmi now, as the politicians realize that they are solidifying their political futures by giving special privileges to m*slims.
How the Hell are the English so bloody stupid?
What a lie. Muslims were on the a Nazis side.
Enoch Powell spinning in grave.
So sad. The UK was once a decent country. Now it’s just a muzzie lap dog.
When I read the title of this post I thought it must be from Babylon Bee.
How far Britain has fallen!
I’m starting to hope the UK doesn’t Brexit.
The UK and the EU deserve each other.
This could have been a Monty Python routine about 50 years ago.
It uses the word Jew (or variations) 75 times
I wasn’t aware that there were ever “black people” in concentration camps.
“...Jews seem to be systematically excluded ...”
Exactly how the Holocaust started: Ban the mention of Jews from the media, kick them out of schools, take their names off buildings, etc. Then, when they’re rounded up, it’s not a big deal, as nobody hears.
UK version of some people did something.
As someone who lost family at Jasenovac, I always thought the “six million” should have been the “eleven million”, including all Nazi death camp victims. But to exclude the Jewish people is insane.
The current grievance list has always been the grievance list.
Orwell warned us about this.
Contact the British Embassy in D.C., and tell them why you will never visit the UK, and why. I did.
