RECOGNITION FOR BRITISH HEROES OF THE HOLOCAUST
EDM #1175
Tabled 24 March 2009
2008-09 Session
That this House salutes the courage of British citizens who aided and rescued Jewish people and other minority groups during the Holocaust at great personal risk to themselves and their families; notes that in the midst of the depravity and desperation of the Holocaust, which saw the very worst of mankind, these individuals exemplified the very best of humanity in the compassion, courage and bravery they showed in rescuing thousands from certain death; believes that just as the memory of those who suffered and perished in the Holocaust should never be forgotten, the memory of those who helped save so many lives should be remembered and honoured; lauds the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust in seeking to bring greater recognition to such individuals; further notes that many communities take great pride in honouring local heroes of the Holocaust such as Jane Haining in Dumfriesshire, June Ravenhall in Warwickshire and Major Frank Foley in Stourbridge; believes it to be inadequate that while many of these individuals have been recognised as Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust Memorial authority, they have not been honoured or recognised by the British Government in their own lifetime; and calls on the Government to consider changing the statutes governing the honours system to allow the granting of posthumous honours and to consider ways in which appropriate recognition can be afforded to these individuals.
