The Independent Member for Wagga Wagga, Dr Joe McGirr MP, presented on Wednesday a Notice of Motion in the Legislative Assembly of the NSW Parliament.

In the motion, Dr McGirr acknowledges that December 9, 2023, marks the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.

Dr McGirr also honours the primary initiator of the Convention, Dr Raphael Lemkin, influenced by his studies of the Armenian Genocide and the Jewish Holocaust.

As part of his motion, Dr McGirr then urged the NSW Government to expand secondary school Holocaust education to encompass Armenian, Assyrian, and Greek Genocides, and establish a museum to create awareness about these genocides.
