Notice given 10 September 2003

*581  Senator Hutchins: To move—That the Senate—

(a) notes that:

(i) on 10 September, 68 years ago, the Nazi regime led by Adolf Hitler in Germany decreed the so-called Nuremburg Race Laws, which included the ‘Reich Citizenship Law’, designating Jews as subjects rather than citizens of the German Reich and ‘The Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honour’, preventing Jews from marrying non-Jews, and

(ii) after the passing of the Nuremburg Laws, a dozen supplemental Nazi decrees were issued that eventually outlawed the Jews completely, depriving them of their rights as human beings;

(b) recognises the legal importance of the Nuremburg Laws in allowing the Nazis to carry-out and implement the unbelievably inhumane and despicable program, the Shoah ;

(c) takes this opportunity to remember the estimated 6 million Jews throughout Europe who lost their lives during the Shoah ; and

(d) reaffirms its opposition to anti-semitism and its commitment to combating and eliminating all forms of racism.
