SCHOOLS will unite to take part in readings and performances to mark this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day on January 27.
Mayor of St Helens, Councillor Andy Bowden, will join students from St Augustine’s, De La Salle, Mill Green, Hope Academy and Cowley Language College for the event in the Assembly Room at St Helens Town Hall.
Holocaust Memorial Day is about remembering the victims and those whose lives were changed beyond recognition by the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia as well as ongoing atrocities throughout the world today.
St Helens Library Service will again be playing a full part in the HMD commemorations. Between 10am and 7pm from Monday, January 27 to Wednesday, January 29 Central Library will host the Holocaust Memorial Trust's ‘Hidden Histories’ exhibition.
On Monday, January 27 (4pm to 5pm) there will be a free public performance in the Children’s Room at Central Library by Aidan Jolly and Sai Murray entitled Migrant Reflections.
