This month Ruddington remembers The Holocaust…
The liberation of Auschwitz occurred on 27th January 1945 and this day is now commemorated each year with International Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). HMD remembers not just the millions of victims of the Nazis during World War II but also the victims of later genocides in Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur and Cambodia.
Ruddington Parish Council is going to mark HMD this year with a display in St Peter’s Rooms which will be available to view from Monday 22nd January 2018 until Saturday 27th January during normal Parish Office opening hours. The theme this year is “The Power of Words”. It consists of posters, poetry, booklets, photographs and cards detailing these tragedies. Booklets will be available so you can take the message of HMD away with you.
Councillor Paul Reedman writes “Please come along to see our display. The aim of the exhibition is to honour the victims of genocide and to enable people to reflect upon lessons learned in order to challenge hatred and persecution and to prevent further atrocities. It is suitable for children so please bring them along too. We hope that you will find it very worthwhile.”
