A Blackpool MP has paid tribute to the victims of the Holocaust by signing the Book of Commitment ahead of a day to remember the atrocities.

Gordon Marsden, MP for Blackpool South, signed the book before Monday’s Holocaust Memorial Day to remember the six million Jews killed by the Nazi regime between 1933 and 1945.

Mr Marsden said: “The massacres we are seeing towards certain ethnic groups in places like Iraq, Syria, and Sri Lanka show there is a long way to go to fight the bigotry and hatred these people face.

“However it is a fight we must never give up on.”
