Holocaust Memorial Day is marked each year on 27 January, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps. 

 

The day encourages people to come together around the nation in remembering those who suffered as a result of Nazi persecution and in the Holocaust, or through subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

 

Join us this Holocaust Memorial Day for a traditional service and candle lighting, which will take place in our Millennium Chapel.
