Marking Holocaust Memorial Day on January 27, Fiona O’Donnell MP signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in the House of Commons.

As well as paying tribute to those who died during the Holocaust, she also honoured the extraordinary Holocaust survivors who work tirelessly to educate young people about what they endured.

Ms O’Donnell said: “Holocaust Memorial Day marks the 69th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau – and is an important opportunity to remember the victims and survivors of the Holocaust.”

She encouraged East Lothian communities, schools and individuals to mark the day and to join in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.
