26th January 2016 - Islwyn MP has pledged his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day

Islwyn MP has pledged his commitment to Holocaust Memorial DayChris Evans, Member of Parliament for Islwyn, has signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment and an Early Day Motion to honour and remember the victims of the Holocaust.

Holocaust Memorial Day, which takes place on Wednesday 27th January, coincides with the 71st anniversary since the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated by Soviet troops at the end of the Second World War.

The EDM - Commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 – seeks to ensure that the appalling events of the Holocaust are always understood by future generations. It also highlights a shared commitment to challenging holocaust denial, distortion and denigration.

Mr Evans said: ‘I believe it is vitally important that we remember the holocaust and commemorate the victims of Hitler’s Germany. It is impossible to imagine the harrowing conditions they faced.

‘Only by remembering the darkest parts of our shared history we learn how to stop history repeating itself. Genocide can only happen where ordinary people stand by on the other side and allow it.

‘I encourage all constituents to mark the day and to join members of my community in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.’
