Bury Holocaust Memorial Event 2022

Bury Holocaust Memorial Event 2022

Listen now

Last night, Bury had a virtual Holocaust Memorial Event which aired at 7pm. The ceremony, which had readings, music and prayers, was broadcast live online. But it’s also now available for a week afterwards. This is to give as many people as possible to chance to watch it. 

A number of faith leaders took part including those representing the Islamic, Jewish and Christian faiths. There were also representatives from our friends at Eagles Wing, the Association of Jewish Refugees and the LGBT community.

Councillor Richard Gold, cabinet member for communities, said: “Holocaust Memorial Day has particular significance in our borough, which has the largest Jewish community in the UK outside London. But we also remember the suffering and the victims of genocides across the world: from the atrocities committed in Bosnia and Rwanda to those in Cambodia and Darfur.”

He added that the theme this year is One Day. A day when we are invited to choose a date in history and learn from what happened. This is in the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide. We can also learn what action we need to take now, in speaking out against prejudice, hatred and injustice, to build a better future.
