Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust, and make sure they are not forgotten. This is why I signed the Holocaust Educational Trust Book of Commitment in Parliament to mark the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.

It is essential that we do not forget those who suffered and died, and that we also join together to fight against prejudice and intolerance in our community today in their memory.

Well done! As always you are a compsssionate Member of Parliament with your finger on the pulse of Public Opinion and being a supporter of excellent causes both in the constituency and Parliament. HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY is essential to educating us and future generations on the evils of Nazism and ethnic cleansing. On Holocaust memorial day we mourn the loss of people and their potential We mourn the loss of Jewish people, Romany Gypsies, people with Special needs, gay people and anyone who opposed Hitler and his evil tyranny. I once had the honour of Nursing a lovely gentleman who was incarcerated in Auschwitz. His crine? He was a Polish Law student opposing Hitler's Nazi regime. Makes you think. Also the Nazi Doctors experimented on pregnant Jewish and Gypsy women and those with Special needs or mental health issues.
