The theme for National Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 was 'One Day' - a stark reminder that life can fatally change for ever in the space of just one day. On today's programme we hear stories from three Holocaust survivors, and reflect on the horrifying fact that genocide can still happen today.
Cardinal Michael Fitzgerald is a Roman Catholic priest belonging to the Missionaries of Africa - also known as the White Fathers. After studying psychology and theology, becoming fluent in Arabic, leading courses on Islam for Muslims as well as Christian students, living and working in the Middle East and in the Vatican, Cardinal Fitzgerald is now a leading expert on Islam, Christian-Muslim relations, and inter-religious dialogue. Illness has caused him to cancel his planned visit to the Island this weekend, but extracts from a recent conversation with Father Damian Howard, Provincial Superior - or leader - of the British Jesuits, gives us some insights into the life of a remarkable cleric.
