Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae will join Councillor Jan Goold, in delivering readings to reflect theWe're marking Holocaust Memorial Day 27 January theme of this year’s event, ‘One Day’, along with some students from Alderman White School singing the songs ‘One Day’ and ‘Something (Inside) So Strong’ to show the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide.

“We had an online ceremony last year. I’m glad that the ceremony can be taken place face-to-face again this year. It is important for us to come together, to put aside and to remember, to learn about the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, in the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide. We learn more about the past, we empathise with others today, and we take action for a better future.” said Councillor MacRae.

Each year for the past 21 years Broxtowe Borough Council has held a ceremony at Bramcote Hills Park to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
