Marking Holocaust Memorial Day, Caroline Flint signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in the House of Commons, honouring those who died during the Holocaust as well as honouring the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people about what they endured.
Monday 27th January marked the 69th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the largest mass murder in history.
Caroline Said: "I was proud to take local Sixth Formers to Auschwitz-Birkenau in 2013 to learn about the Nazi death camps. Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. It is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. I encourage all constituents to mark the day and to join members of my community in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.”
In May 2013, Caroline and local sixth form students were part of a group of 200 young people who undertook a one day trip to Auschwitz-Birkenau supported by the Holocaust Educational Trust.
