Tuesday 29/9/15 First planning meeting for Holocaust Memorial Day 2015

September 29, 2015

This afternoon HBC Officers, Cllr Gerry Shimbart and I met to start our plans for HMD 2016. Every year on 27/1 we remember those who lost their lives in the Holocaust and other Genocides. The 27th of January is the day that Auschwitz was liberated in 1945.

The theme  for 2016 is “Don’t Stand By.”
