Holocaust Memorial Day is the international day, on 27 January, to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people murdered under Nazi persecution.
It is important to remember it each and every year, not only to keep the memory of those that perished alive but also to fight the scourge of antisemitism which still unfortunately rears its ugly head. We must also guard against the dangers of genocide which, in recent years, have tragically become a feature of international politics. Commenting, Richard Holden MP said:
"As I have done ever since I have become your MP, I have signed the Holocaust Educational Trust book of commitment in Parliament this year. It is a great opportunity for all MPs to pledge their commitment to honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust, paying tribute to those that survived and committing to fighting against antisemitism and genocide today."
