A Hackney MP signed a book to honour those who died during the Holocaust and the survivors who educate people about what they endured.

MP for Hackney South and Shoreditch signed the book Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in the House of Commons yesterday.

Ms Hillier said: “We must never forget the Holocaust. As the living memories fade and survivors get older we have a duty to ensure future generations learn about the horrors of the Holocaust and other genocide, and work to stop such evil.”

She will attend Hackney’s Holocaust Memorial Day Ceremony tomorrow (January 24).

January 27 will mark the 69th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.
