Last week Dawn Butler MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust ‘Book of Commitment’, pledging her 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.
After signing the Book of Commitment, Ms Butler commented:
Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau – and is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the holocaust and to make sure that they are not forgotten. I believe that Holocaust Memorial Day is a strong reminder that the fight against prejudice and intolerance must never cease.
Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust said:
We are proud that Dawn Butler MP is supporting Holocaust Memorial Day. As we mark the 71st anniversary of the end of the holocaust and the liberation of the concentration camps, 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.
