Commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day

Staffordshire County Council Chief Executive John Henderson, Chairman Kath Perry, and Leader Philip Atkins, mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2020

Seventy five years ago, the infamous Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated and is the reason why we’re commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day.

It’s really important that we remember those affected by genocide around the world and the day gave us the chance to reflect on the past but also helping empower us to build a better future for us all.

On Monday and throughout the week, organisations from across the county are marking the occasion with memorial events and activities. Our own libraries have also got involved with a series of displays to raise awareness and encourage learning.  I do hope that people can take a few moments during the week to remember and reflect.
