Today is Holocaust Memorial Day. I was grateful to have the opportunity to sign the Holocaust Educational Trust (UK) Book of Commitment.
In doing so, I pledge my commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day, honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people today.
This year marks 75 years since the liberation of the concentration camps of Europe and the end of the Second World War. On this anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, people across the globe will remember.
This day is an important opportunity for people from across Europe and across the world, to reflect on the darkest times of European history. As the Holocaust moves from living history, to history, it becomes ever more important that we take the time to remember the six million Jewish victims and also pay tribute to the survivors.”
Those murdered by the Nazis, are never forgotten. We all have a duty to remember the Holocaust and to stand up against antisemitism and hate, now more than ever.”
