‘Stand Together’ – Holocaust Memorial Day 27th January

A memorial service for Holocaust Memorial Day will be taking place at 11:00am on Monday 27 January at the Solihull Council’s Civic Suite.
The internationally recognised day remembers both the survivors and deceased during the genocides of the Second World War and in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur.
This event will also mark both the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Bosnia.
This year’s theme is ‘Stand Together’. This theme notes how regimes throughout history have split societies by marginalising minority groups. The theme of ‘standing together’ with others is therefore vital in supporting all groups in society and rejecting division and prejudice wherever it is found.
The event will last 45 minutes and be attended by the Mayor of Solihull, as well as representatives of Solihull’s Jewish community, Chief Superintendent Lee Wharmby and West Midlands Deputy Lieutenant Stephen Goldstein CBE.
Members of the public are free to attend the event. The event will also be streamed live on the Council’s webcasting service: https://solihull.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/467481
