Join us for for this service, organised by the Parkes Institute, to commemorate Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day.
Southampton will mark the UK’s national Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day with a commemorative event organised by the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton and hosted by Solent University.
Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day is the annual national commemoration and remembrance of victims of national, ethnic, racial, and/or religious persecution. It commemorates all people murdered in genocide. HMD traditionally takes place on 27th January each year. This date marks the liberation of Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
This year, the chosen theme is ‘One Day’. Individuals are encouraged to choose One Day in history of genocide and learn about that day. This theme also represents a collective hope that One Day, there will be no genocide. The University of Southampton and Solent University this year will mark the Armenian Genocide (1915–1916).
