Redcar & Cleveland To Mark Holocaust Memorial Day
Residents from across the borough have been invited to a tree planting ceremony in Redcar’s Garden of Remembrance to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
Taking place on Tuesday 27 January the ceremony will see members of the public, civic officials and local children plant a tree remembering the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime in World War Two.
Joining the Mayor of Redcar & Cleveland, Cllr Carole Simms, will be the Reverend Bruce Harrison who will lead the prayers as well as finish the small ceremony with a Statement of Commitment.
The tree planting will be a memorial to everyone that lost their lives in the Holocaust and also the genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
Members of the public are invited to attend the ceremony, which starts at 11.30am.
Cllr Carole Simms said: “It is important that we mark Holocaust Memorial Day not just within the borough, but worldwide to keep informing the next generations that we remember the atrocities that were committed and ensure that we never allow anyone to repeat them again.”
