Virtual Holocaust Memorial Service - Wednesday, 27 January
25 Jan 2021
Northumberland County Council is hosting a virtual Holocaust memorial event as part of National Holocaust Memorial Day to remember all those lost in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.
The event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day is open to all and can be viewed on the following social media channels from 1:30pm on Wednesday, 27 January:
The theme for this year's Holocaust Memorial Day is ‘be the light in the darkness’ which asks us to consider different kinds of ‘darkness’, for example, identity-based persecution, misinformation, denial of justice; and different ways of ‘being the light’, which will be explored through film, readings and testimonies.
The ceremony will be hosted by the Northumberland Youth Cabinet and Parliament and will begin with the lighting of the Holocaust memorial candle, raising of the Holocaust flag and a blessing from Rabbi Lipsey.
