About | Holocaust Memorial Day

Join us for a gathering in the Constantine Gallery with speakers and students from the University to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. The theme for this year is "Stand Together". We will be marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and the 25th anniversary of the Bosnian genocide.
It will be introduced by Simon Lee, Deputy Director for Sport, Wellbeing and Resilience. This will be followed by readings. We will then light 100 tealights (electronic) 75 to mark the 75th anniversary and 25 to mark the 25th anniversary.

Following the event all visitors are welcome to join us to plant a tree in King Edwards Square.
