Holocaust survivors pen letter to Suella Braverman over migrant remarks

The language used to discuss those arriving in the UK via small boats has come under scrutiny this week.

In particular, the comments made by Home Secretary Suella Braverman on Monday have prompted Holocaust survivors to write her an open letter, published in the Mirror, warning that Ms Braverman’s statements “risked fanning the flames of hatred further”.

Instead, they say – the UK should remain a place of hope for those fleeing war, persecution and torture.

One of those who signed the letter is Joan Salter, who fled Nazi-occupation as a child in 1943 and only managed to be reunited with her parents in the UK four years later.
