WORCESTER MP Robin Walker paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust by signing a special Book of Commitment in the House of Commons.
Mr Walker was the first of hundreds of MPs at Westminster to sign the book ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day on Sunday, January 27 which marks the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp.
This was the site of the largest mass murder in history and the Holocaust Educational Trust has placed a Book of Commitment in Parliament, giving MPs the chance to honour those who were persecuted and killed and encouraging constituents to work together to combat prejudice and racism.
Robin Walker said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity to remember the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. I encourage all constituents to mark the day and to join members of community in the fight against prejudice and intolerance. These events should never be forgotten and must never be repeated.”
