Holocaust Memorial Day Service
Event from SU Campaigns & Communities
Monday 27 January 2020, 12:30pm - 1pm
Jewish Israeli Society, together with the Chaplaincy and the Students’ Union, request your attendance at a service to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2020.
The service will commence at 12:30pm in the Chaplaincy.
This year’s HMD marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The theme for HMD 2020 is ‘Stand Together’. It explores how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalising certain groups, and how these tactics can be challenged by individuals standing together with their neighbours, and speaking out against oppression.
‘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
