So today is pretty historic for Britain. Today we will decide whether to leave or remain in the European Union.
I’m worried. I hope common sense will win through, but hey, nothing motivates like xenophobia, right? I genuinely believe if we leave the EU, the next step will be to put a system in place to ‘send all the foreigners back’ and then we’ll be well on our way to the dawning of a new Holocaust.
I sound like a drama queen, I know. But if you went back in time to warn people about the Holocaust, do you really think they’d believe you?
I’m not going to get into all the different issues surrounding the referendum, because this isn’t a political blog. But I thought I’d mention a few books with a really strong message about the Holocaust. I think it’s so important to read up on and learn from all areas of history, and I don’t really think it’s possible to read these books and not come out with a deep hatred for racism and intolerance.
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank.
I’m embarrassed to admit I’ve still only read about two-thirds of this, but what I have read was deeply affecting.

I had heard of the book and wanted to read it, but I mainly bought it because it was cheap and I wanted to add to my collection of Penguin Modern Classics…
