Holocaust survivor and former prisoner of the Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, Miriam Friedman Ziegler, shows a historical picture of her and other prisoners in Oswiecim on January 26, 2020, one day before the 75th anniversary of its liberation

Dr Katy Radford: Why we remember the Holocaust 

In this 75th year after the liberation of Auschwitz, it is fitting that we respectfully ask why we continue to hold memorials to and commemorate this event. This is not least so as in the years since, we have experienced other genocides in Cambodia, Darfur, Bosnia and Rwanda and the murder of thousands of unarmed civilians by the states in which they live in other parts of the world along with a growth in terrorist activities against other citizens internationally.

Building bridges: Lord Eames

Lord Eames: Too much religion and not enough Christianity in Northern Ireland 

Lord Eames is a former Church of Ireland Primate and is currently a cross-bencher in the House of Lords. In 2007, he received the Order of Merit from the Queen for his efforts to build bridges in Northern Ireland. The Order of Merit is the most senior honour to be conferred, beyond inherited status. There are only 24 members of the Order of Merit at any one time. He has been married to Christine for 53 years and the couple have two grown-up sons, Niall and Michael, and seven grandchildren.
