Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January 2018

January 26, 2018

Saturday 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. This week, I met with the Holocaust Educational Trust to sign their Book of Commitment and 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.
