Holocaust Memorial Day 2011 was marked at over 500 local events around the United Kingdom, as well as at the national commemoration in the Royal Horticultural Halls which the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, my right hon. Friend Mr Pickles addressed on behalf of the Government.
The Government supported the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust to organise the national commemoration and its associated educational programme, and to encourage local events. We have indicated that we will continue to meet the costs of Holocaust Memorial Day for a minimum of a further two years, during which time my Department will assist the trust to optimise its business model so that it is able to continue its crucial work in the most effective way possible.
