"The Holocaust is unique in man's inhumanity to man and it stands alone as the darkest hour of human history."
So states the Prime Minster's Holocaust Commission website, set up to investigate what measures should be taken to ensure Britain has a permanent and fitting memorial to the Holocaust.
Our responsibility is to make sure that the *Jewish voice**,* specifically, is heard. We need to ensure that the Holocaust remains, once all the survivors are long gone, embedded in British society appropriately commemorated and with its lessons continuing to be learned. Specifically as Jews, we may want to raise: education, types of commemoration, restitution, location of lost graves, legacy.... and this is our chance. This is a once in a lifetime chance to feed the Jewish voice on Holocaust into government.
Finally, the Commission provides an opportunity for us to think more about our own focus on the Holocaust and how we want to move forward as a Jewish community, with the legacy.
