Gathering to mark Holocaust

Have your say

SHEFFIELD is hosting an exhibition and commemorative event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

There will be a display in the Winter Garden for a week which launches tomorrow and an event at 5.30pm on Monday where speakers from different community and religious groups will talk about the importance of ensuring the genocide is not forgotten.

Holocaust Memorial Day is on Sunday and will mark the 68th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp.

Several MPs from around South Yorkshire are also supporting the day by signing a Book of Commitment, which is provided each year by the Holocaust Education Trust.

Angela Smith, Labour MP for Penistone and Stocksbridge, and Heeley MP Meg Munn have signed.
