British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak this week commended the brave Holocaust survivors who continue to tell their stories so that we will never forget the atrocities committed during the Holocaust.

During Prime Minister’s Questions on Wednesday, Sunak said, “Antisemitism has no place in our society and we’re taking a strong lead in tackling it in all forms.”

“We became the first country to adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism and the government’s independent advisor on antisemitism regularly provides advice to ministers on how best to tackle this issue,” he said.

“And can I just join him, as I know the whole house will, in praising those survivors who so bravely tell their stories so we might never forget,” Sunak added.

The prime minister was responding to a question from the Conservative MP Bob Blackman, who was calling upon him to ensure the Holocaust will always be remembered.

Blackman said, “84 years ago today in Germany hundreds of synagogues were destroyed, Torah scrolls were desecrated, thousands of Jewish businesses and shops were destroyed as well.

“91 Jewish people were murdered and later 30 thousand Jewish men were sent to the concentration camps.

“So as we commemorate Kristallnacht let us remember that it was started with anti-Jewish hatred, it became antisemitism, and it’s still prevelent in society today.

“So will my right honourable friend condemn as in all its forms, but congratulate the Holocaust survivors who give their testimony year after year and in particular congratulate the Holocaust Educational Trust for the brilliant work they do in making sure we will never ever forget what happened in the Holocaust.”

Holocaust Education Trust Chief Executive Karen Pollock has separately thanked the MPs for their “wonderful support” for “our brave survivors”.
