Lambeth Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration 2016

The Kia Oval will host the borough’s commemoration for the 2016 Holocaust Memorial Day on Sunday 24 January. On HMD we honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to work to end discrimination and prejudice; and pledge to help create a safer, better future.

The theme for HMD 2016 is 'Don’t Stand By', and it encourages people to consider their individual responsibilities, not to be bystanders to hate crime and prejudice, nor to international threats of genocide. It is a particularly poignant year to highlight the way individuals from across society have stood up to injustice and persecution within their specific fields.

The event will include memorable words from our keynote speaker Lord Alfred Dubs.There will also be readings from Dunraven School, a film screening, musical contributions from the Corpus Christi School Choir and closing works from Dr Sarfraz Jeraj, Co-Chair of Lambeth Citizens and President of the Hyderi Islamic Centre.

All who wish to take part are welcome to attend.
