Honouring the murdered of the Holocaust

Monday, January 26, 2015

Meg Munn MP has signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment and will be honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust. On Holocaust Memorial Day, 27th January, she will particularly be paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people.

The 27th January will mark 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. They will remember all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

Meg recently visited Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Jerusalem. Yad Vashem means “memorial of names” and seeks to tell the story of the Holocaust through individual stories of victims, their families, people who protected and saved Jews and those who were involved in killing them. The museum collects the names of those who died and records them of the 6 million who were murdered only about half are known.

Meg 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 and make sure they are not forgotten. 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, said:

“We are proud that Meg is supporting Holocaust Memorial Day. As we mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and the liberation of the concentration camps in 2015, 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 anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry.
