Special event for Holocaust Memorial Day in Aberdeen. Lest we forget.

Aberdeen Holocaust Memorial Day Committee, has organised a special event aimed at ensuring the memory of the Holocaust and other genocides are kept alive and that lessons are learned for today and for future generations.

The event will be held on Monday 27th January from 12 until 1pm in Aberdeen Art Gallery, Cowdray Hall and Memorial Hall, Schoolhill Aberdeen AB10 1FQ. There will be a minute’s silence at 12:30 in the Memorial Hall.

The event will hear from school children who have visited concentration camps, and from individuals who have been personally affected by genocide.

We will join together in solidarity, standing together in silence to reflect on those who have been lost. The event will also mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz Concentration Camp and the 25th anniversary of the genocide in Bosnia.

The event will be BSL signed.

All ATUC delegates and affiliates are urged to attend if you can.
