Labour party members who express anti-Semitic views should visit Auschwitz, an MP embroiled in a row with her own constituents has said.
Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield said she doubts people within the party would "still say and feel those same things” if they went to see the Nazi concentration camp in Poland.
She was speaking at a Jewish Labour Movement event at the Labour party conference in Liverpool.
It comes after Ms Duffield had been told earlier this month she might be censured by members of her own association over her support for those protesting at Labour’s stance on anti-Semitism.
The move was quickly dropped but party leader Jeremy Corbyn refused calls to offer his support for the under-fire MP.
At today's meeting, Ms Duffield said: “The motion to censure me almost worked.
"I thought for a nanosecond about not coming today. And then I thought no chance.
"No chance am I going to sit by without saying something.”
Ms Duffield became the first Labour MP for Canterbury when she unseated long-serving MP Julian Brazer in last year's General Election.
She also described "completely mad" suggestions that she is being paid by the Israeli government to speak about anti-Semitism.
She told of her experience of visiting Auschwitz as a teenager which she said "was a profound experience".
