This Holocaust Remembrance Day, lets acknowledge the current Holocaust of the Uyghur Muslims

At the time of this writing, China is currently detaining around 2 million Uyghur and ethnic Muslims in concentration camps across the northwestern province of Xinjiang – once in these camps, they are subject to torture, forced reversions away from Islam, mass rape, forced sterilizations, and other accounts that amount to possible crimes against humanity.

Monday the 27th of January marks the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, which saw the deaths of 6 million Jews as well as millions of other minorities in concentration camps across Europe during the Second World War. This genocide, marked by the horrendous rise of Nazism and fascist leadership in Europe, also saw a change in attitude in the aftermath of the atrocity.

Calls for “never again” dominated discussions in governments and parliaments around the world; the horrendous genocide of the Jewish people, fuelled by despicable Nazi ideology, changed the entire discourse on war. Genocide, war crimes, and crimes against humanity became household points of discussion – it became feasible to try world leaders on these very accounts, with the public closely following the turn of events.

This January marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, one of the most horrendous concentration camps, the ending of the Second World War, and also the ending of the Holocaust itself. As politicians, civilians, governments, and faith groups come together to remember those painfully lost during one of modern history’s most atrocious acts of barbarity – many have failed to actually implement their calls for “never again”.

The darker side of China: A brief history of the Communist state and the Uyghur Muslims

China continues to deny any accusations of genocide or involvement with the abuses happening with the Uyghur Muslims, however satellite imagery, accounts from eye witnesses, and most recently the smuggled Xinjiang Papers reveal a horrendous and systematic genocide being conducted against the Uyghur and ethnic Muslims of northwestern China. World leaders, including those from Muslim-majority nations, continue to bask in a openly friendly relationship with China, while ignoring the holocaust happening in Xinjiang. What must it take for world leaders to truly act upon the phrase never again?
