Shoah survivors Ruth Barnett and Dorit Oliver Wolff have warned that the UK is “not doing enough” for Uyghurs as trade ties with China face growing scrutiny.
“Trade is not worth the price of a people,” they wrote in a letter on Tuesday calling for a meeting with the prime minister. “We simply cannot stand by when others remain silent.”
“We cannot stand by whilst we carry on business as usual. Please meet with us ahead of the vote on the genocide amendment to discuss the changes we urgently need to see.”
Ms Barnett and Ms Wolff – both honoured by the Queen in 2019 – also made their appeal to Boris Johnson in a short video posted on social media.
