HUMZA Yousaf could be seen wearing a small pink and purple badge during First Minister's Questions on Thursday.

As the First Minister faced MSPs, people across the chamber were spotted wearing the enamel pins. 

The small badges are being worn to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, which takes place on Saturday. 

The badge is in the shape of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust logo.

The National:

On the day, people around the world remember the millions murdered by the Nazi regime.

January 27 marks the important day as it is the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, which was the biggest Nazi concentration camp.

The trust also encourages people to spend January 27 remembering other genocides – including those in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

Holocaust Memorial Day is distinct from Yom HaShoah, a date in the Jewish calendar where those murdered in the Holocaust are mourned.
