  • All News Items- Visit of Adviser to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (previously the The Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research)
    topic of Jewish resistance during the Holocaust The lecture was extremely well received Dr Katz was also provided with a short tour of the museum and an overview on the museum s expansion plans Annex 1 The Stockholm Declaration 1 The Holocaust Shoah fundamentally challenged the foundations of civilization The unprecedented character of the Holocaust will always hold universal meaning After half a century it remains an event close enough in time that survivors can still bear witness to the horrors that engulfed the Jewish people The terrible suffering of the many millions of other victims of the Nazis has left an indelible scar across Europe as well 2 The magnitude of the Holocaust planned and carried out by the Nazis must be forever seared in our collective memory The selfless sacrifices of those who defied the Nazis and sometimes gave their own lives to protect or rescue the Holocaust s victims must also be inscribed in our hearts The depths of that horror and the heights of their heroism can be touchstones in our understanding of the human capacity for evil and for good 3 With humanity still scarred by genocide ethnic cleansing racism anti semitism and xenophobia the international community shares a solemn responsibility to fight those evils Together we must uphold the terrible truth of the Holocaust against those who deny it We must strengthen the moral commitment of our peoples and the political commitment of our governments to ensure that future generations can understand the causes of the Holocaust and reflect upon its consequences 4 We pledge to strengthen our efforts to promote education remembrance and research about the Holocaust both in those of our countries that have already done much and those that choose to join this effort 5 We share a commitment to encourage the study of the Holocaust in all its dimensions We will promote education about the Holocaust in our schools and universities in our communities and encourage it in other institutions 6 We share a commitment to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to honour those who stood against it We will encourage appropriate forms of Holocaust remembrance including an annual Day of Holocaust Remembrance in our countries 7 We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust We will take all necessary steps to facilitate the opening of archives in order to ensure that all documents bearing on the Holocaust are available to researchers 8 It is appropriate that this the first major international conference of the new millenium declares its commitment to plant the seeds of a better future amidst the soil of a bitter past We empathize with the victims suffering and draw inspiration from their struggle Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished respect the survivors still with us and reaffirm humanity s common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice Annex 2 Keynote address by Minister for Justice Equality and Defence Alan Shatter TD at National Holocaust Memorial Day 2013 Commemoration held at the Mansion House Dublin 2 at 6 00 pm on 27th January Today we remember the six millions Jews who died in the Shoah and also other victims of the barbarity of the Third Reich the Roma and Sinti communities Slavs gay men disabled persons Jehovah witnesses and dissidents We remember that erasing European Jewish civilisation from the face of the earth was a German war aim Indeed if Nazi Germany s wartime objectives had been fulfilled we should never forget in this State that the thoroughness of the planned liquidation of European Jewry included the elimination of 4 500 members of the Irish Jewish community We remember that the Nazis murdered each day of the war on average 3 000 Jews To achieve this average required and included the elimination of 10 000 Jews a day in Auschwitz Birkenau in the final months of its industrial killings The Nazis death machine showed no mercy and was devoid of morality The destruction ensured the elimination of never to be known future generations by the murder of over one million Jewish children In the ghettoes and camps beating torture and starvation were the daily routine ending for those victims who were still alive in murder by gas or bullet To the killers the victims were mere numbers that they wished to see perish in the anonymity of smoke and ash There was no limit to their cruelty malice and lust to kill No limit to the shame indignity humiliation torture and anguish they were willing to inflict No limit to their capacity to produce what the poet Paul Celan called the black milk of the inhuman Some ask what lessons might we learn from the Shoah A simple reply is that no assumptions about normality no philosophical or psychological enquiry no analysis of human behaviour can provide any explanation for what happened It does not require learning lessons to state one simple moral fact the Shoah was a bottomless and infinite evil In the post Shoah time nothing should hide the nature of that evil No search for its meaning no profaning of history no perverting of language no consoling story of salvation no trivialising of images can be allowed to diminish the memory of the cruel inhuman and the degrading ordeal of brutal enslavement and criminal mass murder inflicted upon innocent European Jewish men women and children Inflicted simply because they were a people and Jewish The Shoah not only eliminated the dead it remained with the living Those who survived did not understand why and for too many survivors following liberation what was normal for those who had not experienced the hell of the camps became for them the abnormal The experience left many survivors so traumatised that after the death camps they struggled to survive survival In the book Witness a record of survivors testimonies Rabbi Baruch G his surname is not given said that he had to discover again that existing

  • All News Items- Speech by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Mr. Alan Shatter, TD “An Intercultural Milestone Event – Making Diversity Work for Cities”
    far we have avoided the extreme racial tensions that have emerged elsewhere in Europe and we do not have any anti migrant political party However we are aware that we must remain vigilant in this regard The system of public administration in Ireland is adapting to meet the needs of our new arrivals A number of key Departments have developed specific strategies to ensure that their services respond to Ireland s changed demographic in a competent and inclusive manner The strategies developed have included An Intercultural Health Strategy An Intercultural Education Strategy A Cultural and Arts Policy A Garda Síochána National Police Diversity Strategy and An Action Strategy for Integrated Workplaces At a macro level the Government s integration policy focuses on a number of key principles which include An intercultural approach which places an emphasis on the creation of common ground mutual understanding and shared aspirations encouragement of ethnic mixing in housing polices and the provision of interculturally competent services Rights and responsibilities for both parties Mutual adaptation Ownership responsibilities for everyone including local authorities trade unions sports groups media etc A whole of Government approach A mainstreaming policy and approach to service delivery for migrants The need to set integration within the wider social inclusion context Effective and equitable provision of core services Local level integration measures In Ireland we have adopted a policy of mainstream service provision in the integration area while at the same time recognising the need for targeted initiatives to meet specific short term needs My Department through the Office for the Promotion of Migrant Integration has a cross Departmental mandate to develop lead and co ordinate integration policy across other Government Departments agencies and services I believe that for integration to be truly effective there must be a ground up approach which takes place at a local level Integration policies and practices must be pursued in the community in the home in the workplace and in the schools The importance of Local Authorities in facilitating integration cannot be overestimated Local government has a more immediate effect on the day to day lives of the people than many other sectors of public administration and they are best placed to know and respond to particular issues in their communities For this reason my Department has provided funding to numerous local authorities around the country to develop integration plans strategies and initiatives to promote integration The Integration Office within Dublin City Council has been to the forefront in promoting integration in the Dublin City region and I am very pleased that my Department has been in a position to support Dublin City Council in its many projects including its One City One People campaign against racism and discrimination Dublin City Council also holds Cultural events to celebrate other nationalities for example Dublin Chinese New Year Festival Experience Japan Africa Day and Diwali These welcome events combine arts cultural social and economic strands encouraging co operation and integration across and between different ethnic communities and add wonderful
