The first Holocaust memorial service will be open to members of the public on January 27 2022, for the first time since the pandemic began.

The ceremony will take place at The walled garden, Bramcote Hills Park, Nottingham, starting at 11am.

The event will be open to members of the public, with guest speakers invited.

Last year, the memorial was broadcast online instead as the UK were in national lockdown during this time.

Inside the walled garden, sits the Holocaust Memorial, a sculpture called The Refugee by Naomi Blake who was a Holocaust survivor, as designated by the plaque in front.

Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Richard MacRae will join Councillor Jan Goold, in delivering readings to reflect the theme of this year’s event, ‘One Day’, along with some students from Alderman White School singing the songs ‘One Day’ and ‘Something (Inside) So Strong’ to show the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide.

All are welcome to join in remembering those who lost their lives so barbarically.
