Holocaust Memorial Day

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Trudy Bowen, will be attending a multi-faith service at the Cenotaph in the citys St Peter’s Gardens.

The service will take place at 10.15am on Sunday, 27 January, and will be attended by representatives from the different faith communities in Wolverhampton, as well as city councillors, ex-service organisations, the trades unions and pensioners’ organisations.

The Mayor, who will be accompanied by the Consort, Mr Paul Kalinauckas, will lay a wreath in memory of the victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution.

As a show of support for the event, the Mayor and Consort will later sign the Statement of Commitment, which was developed for the inaugural Holocaust Memorial Day national event in January 2001, and will invite others present to do the same.

The document calls for people to remember the Holocaust, educate future generations about what happened and to recognise that everyone has a responsibility to fight the evils of discrimination, racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.

Members of the public are invited to attend the service at the Cenotaph.
