Mark Holocaust Memorial Day at Brent’s virtual event

13 January 2022

Join us to hear the stories that were not learned from history books, but around the dinner table and mark Holocaust Memorial Day with special guests Mala Tribich MBE and Michael Helfgott.

Brent’s memorial event, which will take place virtually on the evening of 3 February, hopes to provide an opportunity for education, reflection and a look towards a better future.

With the theme ‘One Day’, this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day urges people to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, the millions more murdered during Nazi Persecution and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

Brent’s memorial will feature performances from local children thanks to the JFS school choir, as well as The London Cantorial Singers.

Cllr Promise Knight, Lead Member for Community Safety and Engagement at Brent Council, said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is an opportunity to remember the necessity of standing up against oppression. Brent prides itself on being a borough brimming with different cultures and we are committed to coming together to say no to those who attempt to devalue and divide communities.”

“Looking at the past helps us to plan for a brighter future, so as we remember those whose lives were taken in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides around the world, we will take time to think about how we can prevent such tragedies in the future.”

Brent's Holocaust Memorial event will take place virtually on 3 February between 6-8pm. To register, go to: https://BrentHMD2022.eventbrite.co.uk
