LGBTQ RIGHTS & RELIGION

Student Blog

BY MELISSA BHEEKA


"I think that there should be an open dialogue between the LGBT community and the different faiths. Something like an open conference with representatives of each religion (e.g. priests and imams) who are ready to discuss this issue with the public. Although there are laws in place that recognise LGBT and allow same sex-marriage (at least for the UK), people can feel excluded from their own community and face the dilemma of embracing their own sexuality or rejecting it for their faith."

Remembering the impact of genocide

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY


As part of Holocaust Memorial Day, students sent postcards to survivors of genocides.  

Read their responses below:

"Thank you for taking the time to read my story.  I hope that you will share my story with your friends and other people.  Millions of human lives were lost during the Genocide in Cambodia, and it could and shouls have been prevented.  It's so important to me that younger generations are interested to find out about the genocide.  I know that stories are sad to hear, but this is the only way we can learn, and prevent it from happening again."


Forced out of his home by the Khmer Rouge on 17 April 1975, Sokphal endured hard labour in the Killing Fields and eventually survived the Genocide in Cambodia by escaping to Thai refugee camps where he lived for seven years.

"Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write to me.  I really appreciate it and it means so much to me.  I hope, by reading about my experience during the Holocaust, that you appreciate that even in the midst of untold evil there is an opportunity to be courageous and to do good.  There is always a choice between good and evil.  Whenever you have a choice or decision to make in life, don't take the easy one - take the right one!"


Renee Bornstein survived the Holocaust by hiding in barns, farms and convents. Marianne Cohn, a resistance worker, was murdered by the Gestapo for trying to help Renee and other children escape.​
