Holocaust Memorial Day

Residents are invited to attend this year’s event where Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich MBE will share her testimony as our guest of honour.
Holocaust Memorial Day
Friday 26 January 2018, 9.30am-12.30pm
East Ham Town Hall, Barking Road, E6 2RP
 
The power of words is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2018. This theme explores how language has been used in the past, and how it is used in the present day.
 
The event provides an important opportunity for residents to remember those who suffered and died in the Holocaust, Nazi persecutions and subsequent genocides including Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
 
Join us as we reflect upon these atrocities and join together in demonstrating our solidarity in combating anti-Semitism, racism and hatred.
 
This is a FREE public event. All are welcome to attend.
