Holocaust remembered in Liverpool

LIVERPOOL has marked Holocaust Memorial Day with a series of events including an exhibition, wreath laying and a service. The theme for this year's Holocaust Memorial Day was:- "How can life go on?" and asked people to think about what happens after genocide and our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime.

Lord Mayor, Councillor Roz Gladden, said:- "Holocaust Memorial Day is not only a time to remember those millions who died in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, but is also a call to action for the present. We all have a responsibility over related issues such as hate crime and prejudice to ensure they have no place in our society. The events we are putting on have been very moving and poignant. They have encourage all of us who attended to help to build a safer future for ourselves and future generations."

A 3 day exhibition was also held in the Hall of Remembrance, at Liverpool Town Hall, to raise awareness of the genocide during World War 2, That event was staged by Fathers House, a Christian congregation based in Deeside who question members of the public about their recollection and understanding of the Holocaust.

Pastor Mike Fryer from Fathers House said:- "Before the early 1990's, the Holocaust was not a subject schools taught to their students and therefore there are those in our society who don't really understand the suffering of those 6 million Jews murdered during the World War 2."

Liverpool Councillor Jeremy Wolfson, a member of the City's Jewish community, said:- "This exhibition has again given us an opportunity to reflect on the Holocaust and raise awareness of not only what happened, but to try and ensure that the attitudes which led to it are not repeated."

Wreaths where also laid at the memorial stone in St John's Gardens, in memory of all victims of persecution, along with a special service at Liverpool Town Hall, attended by all civic and faith representatives, as well as invited members of the local community.
