"It challenges us to embrace people from different walks of life, faiths and cultural backgrounds."
Holocaust Memorial Day originated 12 years ago when government representatives worldwide met in Stockholm to discuss holocaust education, remembrance and research.
A declaration was signed to make a commitment to preserve the memory of those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides.
Mr Thomas added: "It is important that we learn lessons from the past and that we convey the horrific atrocities of the holocaust to our youth and that they themselves are part of a worldwide message to stand up against hatred in all its forms to prevent racism, discrimination and prejudice in today's society."
The memorial evening begins at 7pm on Wednesday, February 6, at the Princess Royal Theatre, Port Talbot.
