Community Reflects on Holocaust at Annual Memorial Event

13/01/2017 - The Broxtowe Community will stand together at a short ceremony later this month to mark the 17th annual event on Friday 27th January which will take place in the Walled Garden at Bramcote Hills Park at 11.00am.

Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Graham Harvey will join 14 year old Oliver Leask and Nathan Taylor pupils from Alderman White School and members of Bramcote Youth Voice, in delivering readings to reflect the theme of this year's event, 'How Can Life Go On?'.

Knitted memories will also be placed around the Holocaust Memorial in the park, knitted by local crafter Hannah Birch and her son Barney Birch from Fernwood School who will be writing about the event for his school newsletter.

"There have been many tragic incidents across the world in the past year and the theme of 'How Can Life Go On?' is an important message for us to remember the past and think about how they can work together to create a future filled with peace, harmony and unity." said Councillor Harvey.

Each year for the past 17 years Broxtowe Borough Council has held a ceremony at Bramcote Hills Park on 27th January to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
