An Extract From Scapegoat By Katherine Quarmby To Mark Holocaust Memorial Day

January 27, 2016

Katherine Quarmby, respected writer and Disability Hate Crime campaigner, is so right in this extract from her 2011 book Scapegoat.

What became known as the Holocaust started with the elimination through murder of disabled people, with the T4 programme.

History teachers need to include this aspect in their teaching of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was not just about eliminating the Jewish religion, it was about eliminating differences and anyone who lacked Hitler’s idea of perfection.

RIP every victim of the Holocaust. Same Difference calls for age-appropriate teaching of all aspects of the Holocaust all the way through the National Curriculum and in all A Level and University level History courses.

We can never forget- we must remember and learn and be taught that the Holocaust can never happen again.

    Until most people are immediately effected, they look the other way. Even more so if they can see some cost to themselves in saving others.

    Today we can see that most clearly in the UK.
