Holocaust Memorial Day...

Holocaust Memorial Day Service

 

Holocaust Memorial Day, Monday 27 January, will be commemorated with a short service at the Holocaust Memorial Garden near the Abbey Gate in the Abbey Gardens, Bury St Edmunds.  Canon Matthew Vernon, Sub Dean of St Edmundsbury Cathedral, will be joined by the Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Councillor Terry Buckle,  children from two Bury St Edmunds schools and representatives from religious groups at a special service at 10.30 am. Children from St James’ Middle School and Guildhall Feoffment School will take part in the service and plant snowdrops in the Memorial Garden.

Canon Vernon comments, ‘This annual service is an important moment to pause and reflect on how injustice affects people throughout the generations, from the Holocaust to the Rwandan genocide and still happens in the world today.’

The theme of this year’s service is Journeys.  The service will explore how the journeys undertaken were often experiences of persecution and terror for so many people who suffered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in the subsequent genocides.  There will also be life stories of journeys that brought survivors to the UK and how, in many instances, journeys of return have been part of the experience of rebuilding. More details can be found on the Holocaust Memorial Day website at www.hmd.org.uk

The short service on January 27 is open to everyone and will feature a series of readings and music.
