Sir - Another Holocaust Memorial Day has come and gone and I would wish to view my opinion on the fact that no wide publicity was given, either by the local authority, nor indeed by the Welwyn & Hatfield Times.
Both are guilty in this regard, to the extent that most of the public had no idea of where or when the local event was going to take place.
It was, after all, a National Holocaust Memorial Day and deserved some publicity.
As one who was actively involved in the liberation of horror camps in the campaign of 1944 to 1945, I have been haunted at what happened. It was something horrific and a defining moment of WW2.
You may also want to watch:
I lost many friends and comrades leading up to the moment of liberation; for we had many casualties on the way to the camps.
To forget the memory of millions of victims of a vile regime, and of the ultimate sacrifice of British soldiers in managing to save a sad small fraction of victims, is something we must never do.

For young people especially, the evil result of pure hate, should be told.
It was the reason, 63 years ago, that led to the murder of millions.
Violence between young people is always in the news, and it was similar to how the seeds of the Holocaust were sown so many years ago, involving so called "undesirables" and Jews.
Murder is frequent between young persons in Britain today.
It is time the historic lessons are learned. Hate can lead to Holocaust.
