Never again?

Has the World learned from the Holocaust? Has our vow to never let genocide happen again been kept? 60 years after the liberation of Auschwitz the World community seems more obsessed with commemorating Holocaust Day than actually trying to make the World a better place.

With genocide still being committed in Sudan (the nation everyone seems to have forgotten about in the wake of the Tsunami disaster), the leading nations still seem incapable of coming up with a solution to the crimes being carried out by Janjaweed Arab Militias.

We must never forget what happened through the 1940s, but rather than spend all our time looking back at the horrors of Auschwitz, it would be a far more fitting tribute if we, as an international community, concentrated our efforts on truly ensuring that these heinous crimes are never committed again.
