Motion text

That this House notes that on 27 January 2010, communities around the UK will mark Holocaust Memorial Day, the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau; further notes that Legacy of Hope is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day this year; considers that continuing the legacy of Holocaust survivors is more crucial than ever as they grow older and less able to speak out about their experiences; lauds the extraordinary contribution to life in Britain made by survivors; celebrates the tireless work of survivors who speak to thousands of young people each year as part of the Holocaust Educational Trust's outreach project; salutes their bravery and determination in telling of their painful and horrific experiences and speaking out for a future where persecution and intolerance are challenged; commends the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust for arranging the national Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration in London; congratulates the Holocaust Educational Trust for organising visits for post-16 students to Auschwitz-Birkenau, enabling thousands to see the site of the largest mass-murder in history at first hand; 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 Wednesday 20 January until Thursday 28 January 2010; and strongly encourages all right hon. and hon. Members to sign the Book and to support Holocaust Memorial Day to safeguard the memory of the Holocaust for future generations.
