Ealing, Englnad -- Ealing Council Leader Julian Bell and Mayor of Ealing, Councillor Rajinder Mann, have planted a tree in front of the council's Perceval House offices to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust. Yesterday (January 27), was the 66th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp in south-west Poland. The tree was planted in remembrance of all the victims of the Nazi Holocaust and all other victims of persecution and torture around the World, including those in Armenia, Assyria, Cambodia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sri Lanka, Rwanda and Darfur. Councillor Julian Bell, Leader of Ealing Council, said: "Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for us all to think about what we can do in our own small way as individuals and as a community to protect one another against discrimination. I hope our children and grand children will commemorate this day for many years to come and continue to challenge persecution."
