Build a bridge | Holocaust Memorial Day 2013

IMG_3611Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.  Many of us will be remembering those communities which were destroyed during the Holocaust under Nazi persecution and the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

London boroughs are holding events today, tomorrow and during the week.

You can find a list of events below, reproduced from the Holocaust Memorial Day website, which is full of excellent information and campaigning material.  Follow the links in the left column for details.  Let me know if you have an event to add.

The theme this year is Communities Together: Build a Bridge and everyone is asked to make links across communities and help to HMD_2013_Logo_Cyan_on_Black_jpeg_1create a safer, better future – and to register their action on the website.
