Holocaust Memorial Day – Jo Swinson’s reflections on her visit to Auschwitz

In September 2009, Jo Swinson MP went to Auschwitz as part of an educational trip with Scottish secondary school pupils.

This is her moving video account of her visit. It breaks my heart to think of the brutality that took place. I really don’t understand how human beings could send other human beings to their deaths like that. This is a harrowing film that should remind us of where such detachment and cruelty can lead. Watch and work out what you are going to do to fight for human rights across our planet.
