On Holocaust Memorial Day we share the memory of millions who were murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the world today. The theme this year is ‘BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS’ where there will be readings and reflections from the Lord Mayor, Leader of the Council and Community Organisations.
This year the vigil will take place virtually on WEDNESDAY 27TH JANUARY, 5:45PM – 7PM. Please find the webcast link below;
This year’s vigil will also pay tribute to Sue Pearson MBE who arrived in Sheffield from Prague on the Kindertransport in 1939 at the age of 11. Sue dedicated her life to education and raising awareness of the Holocaust and the impact of discrimination. Sue sadly passed away in December 2020.
