"Holocaust Memorial Day is an opportunity for all of us to take the time to remember those who died and those who survived the atrocities of genocide.
"These terrible events are not something from hundreds of years ago, but are a part of our recent history and to remember them contributes to our determination as a society for such horrors never to happen again."
Holocaust Memorial Day is the international day of remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust and other genocides.
