Cameron's rubbishing of Auschwitz visits
David Cameron has clearly lost the plot today. He has attacked an imaginative programme whereby some British schoolchildren have the opportunity to visit and reflect at Auschwitz as a 'gimmick'. Under the programme, up to 200 students from across the country will visit to Auschwitz each year to see first hand where the atrocities occurred. Surely, providing such first-hand experience is a vital part of keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive, and to be applauded?
