Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 - Theme is One Day.

Starts: 19:00 On 27 January 2022 | Ends: 20:00 On 09 December 2018 [ Link ]

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) takes place on 27th January each year and is a time to remember the millions of people murdered during the Holocaust under Nazi persecution, and in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. The HMD North Somerset Group wishes to promote the HMD Trust's national ceremony which will be streamed online from 7-8pm on the 27th January 2022. For more details including how to register for the online ceremony please follow the link below.
At 8pm we are invited to 'Light the Darkness'. Households across Britain will be putting lights (or a candle, if safe to do so) in their window to:
* Remember those who were murdered for who they were
* Stand against prejudice and hatred today
The Tower At St. Peter's Church, Portishead, will be lit up in purple to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. There will also be a Memorial Tree planting ceremony at Gordano School.
