Motion text

That this House notes that 27 January marks Holocaust Memorial Day, the day on which Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp was liberated; recognises the significance of this day and the importance of remembering and learning from the past especially when there are those who seek to denigrate and deny its significance; further notes that the theme for January 2010 Legacy of Hope, is inspired by the testimony of holocaust and genocide survivors and teaches the lessons of hope for a safer, inclusive society; condemns denial and denigration of the memory of the Holocaust, as well as of the 1915 Genocide of Armenians and Assyrians in Turkey, and the politics of hatred and division which led to these events; commends the Holocaust Educational Trust for its work in educating on the horrors of the past, reaching thousands of students across the country; and calls on hon. Members to respect Holocaust Memorial Day and to ensure that the Holocaust, the 1915 Genocide and modern atrocities such as the 1988 Anfal Genocide are never forgotten.
