Gratitude to the Bangladeshi Navy for arranging our Trip to the Rohingya Camps.

On Holocaust Memorial Day, I am reflecting on the persecution which is suffered by particular groups, both historically and currently. During our recent delegation visit to Bangladesh, to visit the Kutupalong refugee Rohingya refugee camp at Cox’s Bazar. This was a very emotional visit, and not one which I will forget. The refugees, many just children, are fleeing persecution in Myanmar. When we asked two of the child refugees what they wanted the most, the response was very simple: to go home. To be able to return home safely is their only wish.
