I have signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, pledging my commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and honouring those murdered during the Holocaust as well as acknowledging the extraordinary work carried out by Holocaust survivors to educate young people today. Sunday 27th January will mark the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.
Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people from Walsall South and across the country to reflect on the terrible events of the Holocaust. As the Holocaust moves from living history, to just history, it becomes ever more important that we take the time to remember the victims and also pay tribute to the survivors. I would encourage my constituents to show their support for such an important day.
