Holocaust Memorial Day 2020

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2020 marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. We are marking this day in church at our service on Sunday 26th January.

The theme for this landmark anniversary is “Stand Together”.

Don’t be content in your life just to do no wrong, be prepared every day to try and do some good.

– Sir Nicholas Winton, who rescued 669 children from Nazi-occupied Europe

HMD 2020 also marks the 25th anniversary of the Genocide in Bosnia – read more about this here.

We have been making a banner to mark the occasion and it will be in church from 26th January.

Hundreds of groups around the country have been creating their own Memorial Flame artworks that mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust, the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jews in Europe. 75 of these Memorial Flames have been selected for a national exhibition that will be launched at the UK Commemorative Ceremony for HMD 2020.
