Nigel Evans signs the Holocaust Memorial Book

Nigel Evans today signed the Holocaust Memorial Book ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January 2014.

Speaking from Westminster, Mr Evans said:

“Journeys is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2014.  Journeys themselves became part of genocide, journeys which were often experiences of persecution and terror for so many people who suffered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in the subsequent genocides.  Journeys also gave rise to life stories that brought survivors to the UK and, in many instances, those journeys of return have been part of the experience of rebuilding.

“I think that the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust is invaluable and an incredibly powerful tool both to remember the past suffering and to warn against history repeating itself.

“I strongly encourage everybody to take the time to think and reflect on Holocaust Memorial Day.”
