Remembering the Holocaust

Monday, January 27, 2014

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day and to commemorate this Meg Munn MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in the House of Commons. She did so to honour those who died during the Holocaust as well as those extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people about what they endured.

In the weeks leading up to and after Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events will be arranged by schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country to remember all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

Monday 27th January marks the 69th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history. Earlier this year, Meg had the opportunity to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau with 200 students and fellow MPs from the Yorkshire region.

Meg commented:

“The impact of visiting this Nazi death camp will stay with me. Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity to remember the victims of the Holocaust. I encourage everyone to mark the day and to join together to combat prejudice and intolerance.”
