Remembering victims and survivors of the Holocaust

I have signed a Book of Commitment to honour the millions murdered in the Holocaust and the thousands who survived.

The Holocaust Educational Trust's special tribute comes as Friday (January 27th) marks the anniversary of the liberation of Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.

Thousands of commemorative events will be arranged across the country as part of Holocaust Memorial Day.

It is an important opportunity for people from Dover and Deal and across the country to reflect on this tragic event. To think such evil slaughter took place within the last century is a truly solemn reality.

As it moves from living history to the deeper past, it becomes more important than ever we take the time to remember the victims, and also pay tribute to the survivors.
