HMD 2020: Matthew commemorates 75th Anniversary of Auschwitz liberation

Matthew has commemorated this year's Holocaust Memorial Day as we remember the 75th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. 

Attending events in Barnet, London and in Parliament, Matthew joined constituents and people across the country in remembering the horrors of the Shoah. 

In his speech in Parliament during the official debate on Holocaust Memorial Day, Matthew raised the matter of concentration camps in Alderney and the identification of graves on the island. Matthew also took the opportunity to congratulate Hendon recipients Kurt Marx and Manfred Goldberg, both awarded the British Empire Medal in the New Year's Honours for their services to Holocaust Education.

Matthew also signed the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment (pictured)
