Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day

January 27, 2023 | 10:30 am
St Edmundsbury Cathedral

On Friday 27 January, we will hold our annual special service for Holocaust Memorial Day to remember the victims of genocide. The service will take place in the Peace Garden in the Abbey Gardens at 10.30 am.

 

The theme for 2023’s Holocaust Memorial Day is Ordinary People. Ordinary people were perpetrators, bystanders, rescuers, witnesses – and ordinary people were victims. During the service, we remember the Holocaust and other genocides, like those in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

 

As well as the special service at 10.30 am, the Cathedral will be open for reflection throughout the day
