Special event planned in Leigh to mark Holocaust Memorial Day

First published in

JOURNEYS will be the theme of a commemorative event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

The ceremony will reflect the atrocities of the Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Darfur and Armenia.

It will be held at the Derby Rooms in Leigh Library on Monday 27 between 11.30am and 12.30pm and will include readings from schoolchildren and members of the community.

Lynda Jackson, from WLCT who have organised the event, said: “We would encourage everyone to come along to these events to reflect and make your own commitment to helping end persecution within our own communities.”

Anyone who would like to attend is asked to call 01942 828122 or email museumofwiganlifebookings@wlct.org.
