Each year on Holocaust Memorial day — 27th January, we mount a display and open the church for a few hours as a quiet space for reflection inviting people of all faith and none to drop in
How can life go on? is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017.
The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime. This year's theme is broad and open ended, there are few known answers.
Author and survivor of the Holocaust Elie Wiesel has said:
'For the survivor death is not the problem. Death was an everyday occurrence. We learned to live with Death. The problem is to adjust to life, to living. You must teach us about living.'
