MP John Hayes attended a Parliamentary reception hosted by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.

A range of free resources were launched at the reception, designed to raise awareness about Holocaust Memorial Day and its 2018 theme - ‘Torn from home’.

MPs were encouraged to reflect on how the enforced loss of a safe place to call home is part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing persecution and genocide.

Mr Hayes said he was "deeply moved to meet survivors of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides" and reflected on "the deep and personal importance of a home in which an individual or family can feel secure", adding: "We must never forget."
