SEFTON will once again remember victims of the Holocaust during a special memorial ceremony, open to everyone.
This year’s Holocaust Memorial Day service will be attended by the Mayor of Sefton, Councillor Dave Robinson, on Sunday, January 27 (1.30pm), at Christ Church, Lord Street, Southport.
Partners, including Sefton Council, AJEX, Sefton Equalities Partnership, Sefton Unison, students from local schools and colleges and Christ Church, all help organise the annual service.
The service will be the 19th held in Sefton. Councillors and council officers will also attend.
“It’s a time for us all to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides,” Cllr Robinson said.
“At the annual service in Southport, we unite the many diverse strands of our communities and demonstrate how the lessons of the past can inform our lives today for a safer, better future.
“The service is an important event in our calendar and if you have the time, please join us to mark this day.”
The service, open to everyone, will include refreshments.
