HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY




The Lord Lieutenant and I, together with other civic leaders, were honoured to attend Wiltshire Holocaust Memorial Day online ceremony this year and to say a few words.

The very positive theme of 'Darkness into Light' echoes where we are with Covid and reflects the determination of Jews everywhere to work for better futures. As the WW2 generation passes into history, we must all work even harder to keep the memory - and therefore the lessons - of the Holocaust alive.

This moving event was organised by Matt Holland who also runs the very successful Swindon Festival of Literature (this year 3-9 May online).
