Newham Holocaust Memorial Day 2019: "Torn from home"
Torn from home is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2019. This theme helps us to reflect on how the loss of a safe place to call “home” is part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing persecution and genocide.
It provides an important opportunity for all residents to remember those who suffered and died in the Holocaust, Nazi persecutions and subsequent genocides including Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Join us as we reflect upon these atrocities and join together in demonstrating our solidarity in combating antisemitism, racism and hatred.
Date: Friday 25 January
East Ham Town Hall, Barking Road, E6 2RP
This year, we are honoured to be welcoming back guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Harry Olmer BEM. This is a FREE public event. All are welcome to attend.
