Holocaust Memorial Day

I was grateful to speak in what was a very moving debate for Holocaust Memorial Day yesterday.

We can never forget what happened and what is still happening across the world. Solidarity with those persecuted and denied basic human rights because of who they are across the world .

I also had the opportunity to sign the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment.

Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people from across Motherwell and Wishaw to reflect on the darkest times of European history. As the Holocaust moves from living history, to history, it becomes ever more important that we take the time to remember the six million Jewish victims and also pay tribute to the survivors.
