Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 – Wednesday 27th January –
A message from the Mayor
Today we are broadcasting a special Holocaust Memorial Day event from Coleshill Parish Church.
Each year the Holocaust Memorial Day has a theme and this year it is “Be The Light In The Darkness.” So, we’re asking people to join in and to watch Coleshill’s HMD event online, and to light a tea-light (or candle) in memory of the millions who were persecuted or lost their lives, from all walks of life, from atrocities that have happened worldwide. The Holocaust in Nazi Germany being sadly just one of the many appalling realities, whilst others include the tragedies in Cambodia, Rwanda and Bosnia, unfortunately bringing us up to what is happening now in Darfur.
This local event will be available to view via Coleshill Parish Church’s YouTube link of
and also via their Facebook page
Please join us from 4:15pm for a small, yet significant service, to honour those people who have lost their lives in such tragic events in our history, and disappointing are still suffering in the present day.
We hope you will be able to attend this service at home, and afterwards, when it is safe to do, please pop in to collect an information booklet or a pin badge from the Coleshill Community Hub, on Sumner Road. Please note any donations for pin badges or the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, with be sent directly, in full, to support the much-needed educational work of this important charity.
