A far-left Dutch party has reportedly labelled an event commemorating the Holocaust “inherently racist”.
In a draft of its program for Amsterdam’s upcoming March elections, the BIJ1 Party allegedly claimed that “the Indonesian, Surinamese, Korean, Iraqi victims of the Dutch (or of the violence supported by the Netherlands) are not commemorated,” and that as long as this is the case, “Amsterdam should not serve as a platform” for the event.
Amsterdam’s official memorial commemoration for victims of the Holocaust and Dutch casualties of war is held on 4th May.
