Honouring the ‘Untold Stories’ of the Holocaust

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn pledged her commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day by signing a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons to remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust.

 

The 27th January marks the 66th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp. To mark the date, the Holocaust Education Trust placed a Book of Commitment  in the House of Commons for MPs to pay their respect to those who were persecuted and murdered during the Holocaust - and to support the sharing and safeguarding of ‘Untold Stories’, learning from survivors’ experiences to help create a future free from hatred and prejudice.

 

Meg said:

 

“Today we reflect on the horrors that occurred during the Holocaust and we remember all those that suffered in the concentration camps.

 

In its tenth year of commemoration in the UK, the Holocaust Memorial Day 2011 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 

Whilst anti-Semitism, racism and prejudice still survive in society we must pledge to learn from the past and look to create a brighter future for all.”

 

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Memorial Trust said:

 

“We are delighted that Meg Munn MP is once again supporting Holocaust Memorial Day. As the number of survivors dwindle, remembering the Holocaust and passing on their testimony is more crucial than ever.

 

Reflecting on ‘Untold Stories’ helps to give back voices to those who were persecuted and reinforces the contemporary lessons that can be learnt from this dark period of history.”
