Eddisbury MP Stephen O’Brien marked Holocaust Memorial Day by signing a Book of Commitment at the House of Commons.
The book honours those who died during the Holocaust as well as honouring the extraordinary survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people about what they endured.
The anniversary, on January 27, 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.
Thousands of commemorative events have been arranged by schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country, remembering all the victims and subsequent genocides.
Stephen said: “Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau – and is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust.
“I encourage all constituents to mark the day and to join members of my community in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.”
Karen Pollock MBE, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, added:
“We are proud that Stephen O’Brien is supporting Holocaust Memorial Day. It is vitally important that we both continue to remember and learn from the appalling events of the Holocaust – as well as ensuring that we continue to challenge antisemitism and all forms of bigotry.”
