Neil O'Brien, MP for Harborough, Oadby and Wigston signed the Holocaust Memorial Book in Parliament, to remember the victims of the Holocaust atrocities.
Holocaust Memorial Day is marked annually on 27th January, the anniversary of the liberation of the former Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.
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 ‘Torn from Home’.
Neil said, "It is important we remember the victims and pay tribute to the survivors of these horrible atrocities. We must challenge antisemitism, bigotry and prejudice in all its forms to ensure this can never happen again.
The Holocaust Educational Trust do invaluable work across the country to ensure we never forget what happened and remember those who were killed, and I'd encourage all constituents to visit their website to learn more about what they do."
