Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day

Jason has signed the Book of Commitment, which has been placed in the House of Commons by the Holocaust Educational Trust, to honour those who were persecuted and killed during the Holocaust and also to encourage constituents to work together to combat prejudice and racism today. Sunday January 27th will mark the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp which is the site of the largest mass murder in history.

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, remember all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.
