Annual Service held to pay tribute to Holocaust victims!

ON Sunday 25 January 2015, victims of the Holocaust were remembered at a special service held at Christ Church, on Lord street, Southport. The event, was held at the nearest weekend to the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp, that was marked internationally on 27 January 2015. As with The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2015, that was 'Keep the memory alive', Southport also kept that theme going. The event was extremely well attended, but sadly the shadows of persecution still loomed, as outside Police stood guard following resent events through out the world. In the service was a multitude of ages, faiths and religions... Taking part in the service where Mr M.P. Braham DL, Student Rabbi Kath Vardi, Bill Esterson MP, Students from KGV and Runshaw Collage, Pupils from Sefton Primary School, Sefton Unison, Mayor of Sefton, Counculor Kevin Cluskey, Rabbi Ariel Abel, Revd. S T Reid, Holocaust Fellow Pauline Collier and the Sefton Council Chief Executive Margaret Carney. This was done via the passing on of memories to the youth of today and having them perform talks and reading at the service. This event helps to teach the next generations about the consequences of persecution and the horrors of genocide, that sadly still goes on in some parts of the world. But it it hoped that events like this will not only keep the memory of those who died alive, but will also act to one day prevent it ever happening again. For more information about the annual national commemoration day in the UK go to Council of Christians and Jews website.  To see our photographic coverage of this event, please click on here!
