EDM number 1436 in 2017-19, proposed by John Mann on 20/06/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Death, Racial discrimination, Religion and faith communities and Religious discrimination.

That this House pays tribute to Gena Turgel MBE following her sad passing on 7 June 2018; remembers Gena for her determination to educate about her story of surviving the Krakow ghetto, Plaznow concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buchenwald and Bergen-Belsen, where she was eventually liberated and married one of her liberators, Norman Turgel; recognises her dedication and determination to share her testimony on behalf of the 6 million voiceless Jewish victims murdered during the Holocaust; commends Gena for spending many years speaking in schools across the country and at Holocaust Memorial Day events; and congratulates the work of the Holocaust Educational Trust which has reaffirmed its commitment to sharing Gena's testimony, ensuring that her legacy lives on so that people from every background can learn the lessons of the Holocaust and stand up to hatred, prejudice and antisemitism.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs.
