Holocaust Memorial Day
Friday 27 January 2017, 9.30am-12.30pm
Old Town Hall, 29 Broadway, Stratford E15

Residents are invited to attend this year’s event where Holocaust survivor Harry Olmer will share his testimony as our guest of honour and main speaker. There will also be musical performances and readings by Newham school children and a candle lighting service of reflection.

The theme for the event is How can life go on?

The event provides an important opportunity for residents to remember those that 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.
