Holocaust Memorial Day will be marked this Saturday the 27th of January and marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.
It is difficult to sum up in words to describe how I felt signing the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment. I wanted to pay tribute to those murdered and remember those who survived. But also to remember that the path to such horrendous acts often starts with prejudice and intolerance. With hate filled words and the dehumanisation of those we disagree with.
I'm grateful to the Holocaust Educational Trust for all the work they do and encourage my constituents to show their support for such an important day.
