Michael reaffirms commitment to remembering victims on Holocaust Memorial Day

Michael has marked Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 by stressing the importance of reaffirming our commitment to teaching future generations about the atrocities of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Darfur and Rwanda.

Reflecting on a recent visit to Israel, where he paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, Michael said:MD_HMD.jpg

"Holocaust Memorial Day is an opportunity for us to pause and to remember what happened. But it also offers an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to teaching future generations. When I signed the Holocaust Education Trust's Book of Condolence in Parliament recently, I wrote: "This happened. So it could happen again."

"It is our responsibility to mark Holocaust Memorial Day to ensure that it never happens again".
