This year’s theme ‘Ordinary People’ seeks to highlight the role of people like you and me when placed in awful situations. As a society, we owe it to each other to continually strive to create a safe, prejudice-free community for all to flourish. The Holocaust Memorial ceremony reminds us to remember and honour the ordinary people who have lost their lives as a result of genocide.”
