MP pledges support to the victims

Tynemouth MP Alan Campbell has pledged his support to honouring those who lost their lives in the Holocaust.

The Labour MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, pledging his commitment to Holocaust Memorial Day and paying tribute to the survivors.

Tuesday, January 27, will mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Mr Campbell said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and make sure they are not forgotten. I encourage all constituents to mark the day and to join in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.”

Karen Pollock MBE, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said: “We are proud that Alan Campbell MP is supporting Holocaust Memorial Day.

“As we mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and the liberation of the concentration camps in 2015, it is vitally important that we both continue to remember and learn from the appalling events of the Holocaust – as well as ensuring that we continue to challenge antisemitism and all forms of bigotry.”
