Caldicot Community Hub will host a ceremony at 7pm on Thursday 25th January to remember the millions killed in the Holocaust under Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
The theme for this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day is “The Power of Words”. The event in Caldicot will feature the life stories of those murdered and those who survived, through written and spoken words. A Holocaust survivor will witness the lighting of a candle and an exhibition of art will feature, inspired by this year’s theme.
Councillor Sara Jones, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for equalities said: “Holocaust Memorial Day promotes equality, respect and understanding. It’s a time for us to reflect, to remember the victims of persecution and murder and to learn from the past to build a better future.”
Caldicot’s community hub is based in the town on Woodstock Way, NP26 5DB. Refreshments will be available at this free event and there’s plentiful free parking nearby. For more information contact Caldicot Community Hub on 01291 426425.
