BOROUGH MP Andrew Miller signed a Book of Commitment in the House of Commons to honour those killed in the Holocaust and individuals who risked their lives to help those being persecuted.
Mr Miller said: “My visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau last November with local school students was a deeply moving experience and I am very pleased to see these same young people supporting our local event by submitting their photographs, artwork and reflections on our visit for display and taking part in the ceremonies.
“Thus they are helping to teach the lessons of the Holocaust to other young people in order to fight bigotry and hatred today. The council is also displaying a number of the photographs I took of the horrors of the two camps.
“My wife and I attended the poignant Holocaust Memorial Day National Commemorative event at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
“Ultimately the aim of Holocaust Memorial Day is to motivate people – individually and collectively, to ensure that the horrendous crimes, racism and victimisation committed during the Holocaust and subsequent killings are neither forgotten nor repeated again.”
