Mark Tami MP signs Holocaust Educational Trust Book of Commitment

This week Mark Tami MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, in doing so pledging his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people.

Tuesday 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.

After signing the Book of Commitment, Mark Tami MP commented:

“Holocaust Memorial Day is an important day to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. I have signed the Book of Commitment and I believe we should work together to tackle prejudice and intolerance.”

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, remembering all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:

“We are proud that Mark 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.
