About | Holocaust Memorial Day



While we can’t get together in person to mark Holocaust Memorial Day, we will be holding a virtual event. Join us for readings online here at 12.00pm on Wednesday 27 January.

The theme of 2021 is ‘be the light in the darkness’. To mark this, we will be lighting up the campus. If you are able to do so safely, light a candle and put it in your window at 7pm on 27 January 2021.
