Holocaust Memorial Day

Friday January 27th will mark the 67th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp which is the site of the largest mass murder in history. Jason signed the Book of Commitment, which has been placed in the House of Commons by the Holocaust Educational Trust, to honour the memory of those who were persecuted and murdered during the Holocaust.

Jason joined 6th formers from Greenhead College on an educational visit to Auschwitz last year. To read more about about that visit, please click here.

In the weeks around Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events will be arranged by schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country to remember the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. For more information, please visit www.het.org.uk.
