Excellencies, distinguished participants, dear colleagues, I would like to begin by sincerely thanking the organisers of this poignant and important commemoration.

I am Christiane Amanpour, and thank you for asking me to join in remembering Srebrenica 25 years on. And remembering also that the theme is “Every Action Matters“. So let’s just go back to the early 90s when mayhem was taking place in Europe. After WWII we were raised to say and to be believe […]

First Minister for Scotland
Today, we turn to the important words of #MLK, that remind us of his fight against injustice and the lessons he left us with. We remember Dr. King and his wisdom, strength, and his fight against hatred and inequality.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.
We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our dear friend Bernard Grunberg.
Bernard escaped Nazi persecution by emigrating to England on the Kindertransport. He married in 1947, and worked as an agricultural engineer, labourer & handyman.

By remembering, we can build a better world.
