Antoinette Sandbach MP signs Holocaust Educational Trust Book of Commitment

Last week Antoinette Sandbach MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust's Book of Commitment, in doing so pledging her commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and honouring those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as paying tribute to the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people.

Friday 27th January marked the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history. In the lead up to and on Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events were 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 'How can life go on?'

After signing the Book of Commitment, Ms Sandbach commented:

"Holocaust Memorial Day is an incredibly important opportunity for people from Eddisbury and across the country to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust. We must remember the victims and also pay tribute to the survivors. I would encourage my constituents to show their support for such an important day."
"I'm also pleased that the Holocaust Education Trust has arranged for a survivor to visit Tarporley High School to talk to the children about this extremely important subject."

Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:
"Our mission is to educate young people from every background about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance. We are very grateful to Antoinette Sandbach MP for signing the Book of Commitment, signalling a continued commitment to remembering the victims of the Holocaust as well as challenging antisemitism, prejudice and bigotry in all its forms."
