UK: Outrage as students at NUS Conference argue against commemorating the Holocaust

The National Union of Students caused widespread outrage on Wednesday after students applauded motions not to commemorate the Holocaust, because doing so isn’t ‘inclusive’.

The motion to remember the Holocaust ended up passing, but some argued it shouldn’t have even been an issue at conference – and that the arguments against commemorating the event were ‘anti-Semitic’.

It’s not shocking that the debate occurred, this sort of thing is now common, I’m shocked it didn’t pass.
