Centre Statement on Myanmar’s Rohingya Refugee Crisis

2017-09-28T10:39:09+08:00Tags: , |

The HKHTC is deeply concerned about the developing humanitarian and refugee crisis due to developments in Rakhine state, Myanmar. There have been numerous reports of civilians being wounded and killed as well as Rohingya villages burnt. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have reportedly fled or been driven from their homes, resulting in a large scale humanitarian tragedy.

The HKHTC strongly condemns any violence targeting or affecting the civilian population. The HKHTC calls on the government of Myanmar to ensure the safety, legal protection and well-being of the civilian population, irrespective of their ethnicity or religion, and to grant humanitarian organizations unrestricted access to the affected communities and areas.

HK Public Broadcaster’s Interview with HKHTC’s Holocaust survivor guest Henry Friedman

2017-06-30T12:58:30+08:00Tags: , , |

Holocaust survivor Mr Henry Friedman, our in-house guest during the period of May 20-23, was invited by host Rosie Duffield of RTHK to share his harrowing experience living through the Holocaust in a 60-minute interview. Growing up in Poland, Mr Friedman and his family were quickly swept up by the cruel events punctuating World War Two. With the help of two Ukrainian families, the family was hidden in a space the size of a queen-sized mattress for 18 months. Nothing was easy during that time.

The courage of these Ukrainian families—and so many others like them—lends us critical lessons and stories that should inspire us to live better and treat all people with dignity. The RTHK Radio 3 interview on May 22 can be listened here.
