Liz commemorates Holocaust Memorial Day 2021

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, a day where we commemorate and honour the six million Jewish men, women and children who were murdered under the Nazi regime. We also remember the victims of genocides that have taken place since – Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

This year’s theme is ‘Be the Light in the Darkness’ – and we must use this time to reflect on the ways individuals and communities have resisted hatred and prejudice in the past, and how we can continue to do so today.

While we cannot come together as we usually would to remember this important day, Leicester City Council has put together a programme of virtual events for you to take part in – find out more on their website.
