Holocaust Memorial Day Event 2021

27th January 2021

Virtual Event: Be the Light in the darkness

We would like to invite you to be part of the Redditch Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration, which this year is being presented as a virtual event. The event is 35 minutes long and has been put together by members of the local community - who have read and written poetry, performed readings, sung songs and created their own tributes to mark this event.

The video is set to be released at 11am on Tuesday 26th January, the day before the National Holocaust Memorial Day. It will be available via this link:

If you click on the link before then, you will see a holding image and can set a reminder for when it goes live. If you are unable to watch at 11am, the video can be accessed at any time after the release date and time.

Thank you to all those involved, including Holocaust survivor Bea Green, Redditch Kerala Cultural Association, It’s a Sign, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust Youth Representative, Redditch Muslims, Redditch Indian Community, Holy Trinity Redditch, Redditch Sikh Community, Mental Health Action Group Redditch, students and teachers from St Augustine’s High School and a representative of Redditch Youth.

Holocaust Memorial Day exists to help us to honour the memory of all victims of genocide and atrocity in the world and to strive to ensure that we do not allow such things to occur again. The event is widely supported by a range of community groups.
