HMD-2021-header

For a number of years our Chapel has been open to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. Because of the virus rates our chapel won't be open, but the UK Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2021 will be streamed online. This will be the first fully digital commemorative ceremony.

The ceremony will feature personal testimonies from survivors of genocide, films, readings and music. We will really miss being together in person for HMD. Yet the online format enables even more people to join us and learn from genocide for a better future. Behind the scenes, HMD are working hard to create a special Ceremony for everyone, with survivors at the heart of it all.

Click on this GDPR.11(link) to receive information about how to watch the ceremony at 7pm on 27 January. Please share the registration link widely as we'd like as many people as possible to watch the ceremony.
