Simon Hart MP has signed the Holocaust Educational Trust's Book of Commitment to honour those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as pay tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people today.
Saturday 27th January marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.
In the lead up to and on Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events will be arranged by schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country, remembering all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.
After signing the Book of Commitment, Mr Hart said:
"It is important for us to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust, especially as it moves from living history, to just history. We need to take the time to remember the victims and to pay tribute to the survivors."
