BRENTWOOD and Ongar MP Eric Pickles has signed a book to honour those who died during the Holocaust.

In the House of Commons, the Conservative added his name to the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment as part of International Holocaust Memorial Day on Monday.

The day commemorates those who were killed by the Nazis in concentration camps during the Second World War.

Mr Pickles said: “I have always believed in the importance of remembering the Holocaust which showed what can happen when racism, prejudice and exclusionary behaviour are left unchecked.”
