It is 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Stephen said: "Holocaust Memorial Day is an important opportunity for people to reflect on the darkest times of European history. As the Holocaust moves from living history to history it becomes ever more important we remember the six million Jewish victims and pay tribute to the survivors."

Chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, Karen Pollock MBE, said: "As the Holocaust moves further into history, it falls on all of us to ensure it is never forgotten. We all have a duty to remember the Holocaust and to stand up against antisemitism and hate, now more than ever."
