I was honoured to sign the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in Parliament this week ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day.
Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on Friday 27th January, marking 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 Newport East and across the country to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust, remembering the millions of lives that were cut short in horrific circumstances. It is also an occasion to pay tribute to the survivors of the Holocaust -; their memories of the horrors they witnessed and endured serve as a harrowing warning to us all to challenge racism, intolerance and hatred in all its forms.
