Saturday, 27 January, 2018 - 10:00 to 15:30

A public exhibition will take place at the Town Hall in Durham Market Place, between 10am and 3.30pm.

This will feature stories from the Nazi persecution of the Jews and accounts from the genocides in Darfur, Cambodia, Bosnia and Rwanda, as well as information on the ‘Porrajmos’ (Romani Holocaust).

A display explaining the Durham Light Infantry (DLI)’s involvement in the liberation of Bergen-Belsen death camp will also be available to view, with testimonies from both liberators and liberated.

The County Durham Faiths Network, representing members of different belief groups, has also contributed to the exhibition by submitting quotes and pieces of writing reflecting on the theme ‘The Power of Words’ and responding to the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.
