Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has met with Megan Hill, a student from Maesteg Comprehensive School, in her role as a Young Ambassador for the Holocaust Educational Trust.
The event, held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference centre in central London, brought ambassadors from all over the UK together to discuss how they can continue to raise awareness of the horrors of the Holocaust for generations to come.
Mr Elmore said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to meet with Megan. She’s clearly a very bright and confident young woman and I’m so glad that she’s doing this vital work to raise awareness of the lessons which should never be forgotten about the Holocaust.”
Emily was among 300 young people attending the day, which heard from Holocaust survivors as well as high profile speakers including Dr Deborah Lipstadt who famously won a court case against Holocaust denier David Irving; and Judith Kerr, who escaped Nazi Germany as a child and went on to write children’s books including ‘Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’.
Mr Elmore continued: “I’d like to wish Megan the very best of luck with her university studies – I hope she continues to shine a light on this important issue and I look forward to seeing how her work in this area develops in the future.”
