Holocaust Memorial Day

A service took place today at St Barnabas Church in Middlesbrough to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. The hour-long service brought together people from the local community and from all backgrounds and religious beliefs to mark the 70-year anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and also to remember the millions that were killed by the Nazi’s in all of the camps across Europe during World War Two.

One of the other themes of this and other events throughout the country was also to acknowledge and highlight the other genocides that have taken place such as those in Srebrenica in Bosnia, Darfur, Rwanda and Cambodia.

 

You who live secure
In your warm houses
Who return at evening to find
Hot food and friendly faces
