Doncaster Central MP Rosie Winterton has signed the Holocaust Education Trust's Book of Commitment, to honour to those murdered during the Holocaust and to pay tribute to survivors.

Dame Rosie signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, in doing so pledging her commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day on January 27 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 today.

She said: ““Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people from Doncaster 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.”

This year marked 77 years since the liberation of the concentration camps of Europe and the end of the Second World War. On the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, schools, faith groups and community organisations across the country, remembered all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

Karen Pollock CBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:

““As the Holocaust fades from living memory, it falls on all of us to ensure that their stories and the stories of the six million Jewish men, women and children brutally murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators, are never forgotten. We all have a duty to remember the Holocaust and to stand up against antisemitism and hate, now more than ever.”
