Emma signs the Book of Commitment

This week Emma signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment, in doing so pledging her commitment to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day and survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides around the world.

Holocaust Memorial Day is marked annually on 27th January, the anniversary of the liberation of the former Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. It honours those who were murdered during the Holocaust as well as remembering all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

After signing the Book of Commitment, Emma said:

“Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people from Wolverhampton and across the country to reflect on the horrors of the Holocaust, remember the victims and pay tribute to the survivors.

“The Holocaust did not start in the gas chambers but with hate-filled words. As a society we must always challenge antisemitism, prejudice and bigotry in all its forms.”

Karen Pollock MBE, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said:Emma signs the Book of Commitment

“Our mission is to educate young people from every background about the Holocaust and its contemporary relevance. We are very grateful to Emma for signing the Book of Commitment, signalling a continued commitment to remembering the victims of the Holocaust.”

Emma will be attending the Wolverhampton Holocaust Memorial Day service this Friday at St Peter’s Square.
