Dear Commissioner for Children Jozef Mikloško,
even if you have confirmed your participation in the memorial provider on the occasion of the Memorial Working day of the Victims of the Holocaust and Racial Violence, you are not welcome. Initiating a conference with an admirer of a murderous regime and then collaborating in a memorial company for his victims just do not go alongside one another. So you have decided on with your final decision.
It is needed to make strategic selections or concessions in the place of work you keep, and in some cases you have to act in the interest of larger plans – for the great of the small children. It is termed the artwork of compromise, and we have an understanding of it. Nonetheless, there is no justification for your overtaking a political motion that finds inspiration in the most shameful darkness of Slovak historical past. This is not the artwork of compromise, but tasteless opportunism. In the sq., in a handful of days we will don’t forget the tragic destiny of people today handed around to demise by their have condition, humiliated and murdered in the name of an ideology incompatible with the Judeo-Christian foundations of the European continent. In the civilized planet, no superior official who is meant to combat for kid’s legal rights will sit down at the table with a sympathizer of the routine that deprived youngsters of their legal rights and loaded them into freight cars and trucks. Mr. Commissioner Mikloško, your steps are not about breaking or not breaking the legislation, but about the absence of moral values that need to tutorial your steps, at minimum in the functionality of your posture. In other words, your presence at the commemoration would be an insult to these for whom this memorial is supposed.
