Motion text

That this House notes that 27 January will mark Holocaust Memorial Day, the day on which the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated; further notes this year's theme Stand up to Hatred and its profound contemporary significance; condemns unreservedly denial and denigration of the memory of the Holocaust and the politics of hatred and division which led to it; believes all people hold a collective duty to actively oppose racism, anti-Semitism and prejudice of all kinds; thanks the city of Coventry for hosting the national Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust for arranging it; commends organisations including the Holocaust Educational Trust, which works with schools and communities across the United Kingdom to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust are never forgotten; applauds its Lessons from Auschwitz Project now taking visits from across the United Kingdom, as well as its Think Equal programme, which works with schools in areas suffering from community tensions to help students understand the dangers of racism and discrimination; further notes that a book of commitment will be placed in the corridor between the Members' Cloakroom and Members' Staircase between the hours of 14.30 and 16.30 from 14 January until 27 January; and encourages all right hon. and hon. Members to sign the book and to involve themselves with the day, to ensure that neither the Holocaust, nor its crucial lessons are ever forgotten.
