Motion text

That this House notes that on 27 January 2020 the UK will observe the 15th International Holocaust Remembrance Day since its adoption by the United Nations General Assembly; further notes that International Holocaust Remembrance Day takes place on 27 January to mark the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, which took place 75 years ago, on 27 January 1945; expresses support for the commemorative event taking place at the Auschwitz Memorial on 27 January which will be attended not only by heads of state and other national and international representatives but also by some of the remaining Auschwitz Survivors; recognises the hugely valuable work done by survivors and others in helping us all to learn lessons from the holocaust, and pays tribute to the work of Ingrid Wuga of East Renfrewshire, who escaped from Hitler’s Germany at the age of 15 thanks to the Kindertransport, and who was recently awarded the British Empire Medal for services to Holocaust Education and Awareness, having provided testimony in the last five years alone to more than 5,000 adults and children through the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Outreach Programme.
