Every year in January, the world marks Holocaust Memorial Day which has taken place in the UK since 2001.
On this day we share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the world today.
To commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day we will hold an online vigil on Wednesday 27 January 2021, from 5:45pm to 7pm via Zoom which will be webcast publicly. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic we have had to move away from the usual public gathering in the Winter Garden.
