Residents are invited to remember the millions of people killed in genocides across the world at a Holocaust Memorial Day Service.

Hosted by Bromsgrove District Council Chairman Cllr Rod Laight and Rev Ray Khan from St John’s Church, the memorial service will mark the national theme which for 2022 is ‘One Day’.

Cllr Laight said: “It is important that every year we set aside time as a community to remember and think about the tragedy and atrocity of the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bonia and Darfur, so that such a thing may never be allowed to happen again.”

The service will attended by middle and high schools with North Bromsgrove High School’s choir performing a song.

Rev Khan added: “It is important that we remember the past so we can help shape the future and I am pleased that we are able to get together in person to do this.”

It will take place in Sanders Park around the memorial plaque in front of the pond at 11am on Thursday 27th January and is open to all.

With the high number of cases of Covid in the District, residents are encouraged to take a lateral flow test prior to attendance.   Those displaying Covid-19 symptoms on the day are asked not to attend.   The wearing of facemasks is also advised during the service unless taking part.
