MP bows her head as the nation marks Holocaust Memorial Day

Redditch Editorial 27th Jan, 2022   0

TODAY, Thursday, January 27, is World Holocaust Day, when people come together to remember all those murdered by the Nazis and all those killed in subsequent genocides.

Marking the day, Redditch MP Rachel Maclean said: “On this day in 1945, the largest Nazi death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, was liberated.

“To mark the anniversary of its liberation, Holocaust Memorial Day provides us all with an opportunity to remember the six million Jewish men, women and children who were murdered, all victims of Nazi persecution.

“It’s an important opportunity for Redditch and the country to reflect on the tragic events of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.




“As each year passes and the Holocaust moves from living history, to just history, it becomes even more important we take the time to remember the victims and pay tribute to the survivors.

“Let us stand together against prejudice, hostility, and division in the world today.”
