We are deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of Sir Gerald Kaufman, MP for Manchester Gorton and a member of Remembering Srebrenica’s North West Regional Board.
Gerald served as one of our North West Regional Board members for over 2 years, during which time he attended several of our North West community action events and was passionate about encouraging communities to come together to commemorate Srebrenica, and raise awareness of the genocide.
The child of Polish-Jewish immigrants, he was a vocal advocate for the rights of minorities and the need for inter-faith dialogue. He will be sorely missed, and our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.
Remembering Srebrenica’s North West Regional Chair Elinor Chohan said:
“Gerald Kaufman was a remarkable man who provided valuable support to Remembering Srebrenica in the North West. It was an honour to serve with him on the regional board and we will always be grateful to Sir Gerald for his support and passion for this important cause”.
