ASLEF District Council, which covers London Underground, Tubelines and Tramlink, is making plans for a trip to visit Auschwitz, the notorious concentration camp where the Nazis murdered over one million people; overwhelmingly Jewish, but also Roma, Gays, Trade Unionists and others regarded as less than human. At a time when we once again see the shocking sight of far-right thugs giving Nazi salutes on the streets of London, it is a great opportunity to visit this site and remind ourselves just why it is so important to say “Never Again !”
The trip is planned to take place over two days from February 10th, 2019. The price of £192.50 includes flights from Gatwick, hotel accommodation with breakfast and the tour of Auschwitz. Partners and friends are welcome. Please contact Northernlinebs@aslef.org.uk as soon as possible for more information and to reserve your place. The cut -off date is July 31st.
