Karen Buck MP signs Holocaust Educational Trust Book of Commitment

This week Karen Buck signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment. In doing so she pledged her commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and to 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 will mark 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 will be 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?’

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 Karen Buck 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.'
