Pledging my commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day...


Saturday 3rd February, 2024





This week Kevin Hollinrake MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment. His signing is a pledge of commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day. It is also a way to honour those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people today.

Holocaust Memorial Day falls on 27th January every year, the anniversary of the liberation of the infamous former Nazi concentration and death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, in 1945. Across the UK – and world – people will come together to remember the horrors of the past.

In the lead up to and on 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. The theme for this year’s commemorations is ‘Fragility of Freedom’.
