This Holocaust Memorial Day, Tewkesbury Borough Council is remembering the millions of victims of holocaust – including those under Nazi persecution and in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. 

To pay its respects to all victims affected by genocide across the world and to stand up against prejudice, the council will be taking part in Holocaust Memorial Day’s ‘Light the darkness’ campaign by placing a candle at the holocaust memorial at its Public Services Centre.

Each year, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust holds a theme campaign. This year, the theme is ‘ordinary people’ – ordinary people were perpetrators, bystanders, rescuers, witnesses and victims.

The trust has produced a short film to provide more information about Holocaust Memorial Day.
