Holocaust Memorial Day Book of Commitment

Jason signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in honour of those who died during the Holocaust as well as honouring the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work to educate young people about what they endured.

Holocaust Memorial Day

Tuesday 27th January marks the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, 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.

Thanks to the work of the Holocaust Education Trust in 2011 Jason was given the opportunity to join Greenhead College students on a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau. The trust organises these visits so that students can return to their colleagues and schools and tell others of the horrors they’ve seen. For more information please click here.
