Broxtowe Marks Holocaust Memorial Day

16/01/24 - The Broxtowe Community will come together at a short ceremony later this month to mark the 22nd annual event on Friday 26 January which will take place in the Walled Garden at Bramcote Hills Park at 11.00am.

Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Teresa Cullen will join the Leader of the Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE, poet Jay Trivedi and pupils from Alderman White School in delivering readings and choir performances to reflect the theme of this year’s event, ‘The Fragility of Freedom’. Members of the public are warmly encouraged to attend. 

Councillor Cullen said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is an important day in our civic calendar. It asks us to remember the events of the past which have shaped the present, and gives us the opportunity to choose a safe, prejudice-free community for all. This year also sees us marking the 30th anniversary of the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda and remembering its lasting impact.

The theme ‘The Fragility of Freedom’ is particularly pertinent right now when we consider the conflict happening across the world. Freedom means different things to different people and we all deserve to live our lives free from persecution.”

Holocaust Memorial Day remembers the victims of the Holocaust and the subsequent genocides, reminding the world that we need to work together to denounce prejudice.
