VIDEO: Holocaust Memorial Day marked in Doncaster

Holocaust Memorial Day 2015 was marked with a service at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery yesterday.

This year’s Holocaust Memorial Day theme was ‘Keep the Memory Alive’, which has been chosen due to the increasingly small number of people left who have direct memories of the Holocaust.

The event was attended by the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Glyn Jones, who said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is a great way of keeping these memories alive. It is vital that we do remember all who lost their lives or have been affected by the Holocaust and subsequent genocides such as Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.”
