City of York Council’s annual Civic Event hosted by the Lord Mayor and Civic Party for Holocaust Memorial Day is embracing the national theme, ‘Stand Together’. Exploring how now more than ever, we need to stand together with others in our communities in order to stop division.
The evening event is hosted by the Lord Mayor and Civic Party, with speakers, readings, information and screening of the 2020 community project film.
Holocaust Memorial Day is now an established act of commemoration when people from all over the world come together to remember the destruction and devastation caused by the Holocaust and more recent genocides and persecution. This year, York will be embracing the theme Stand Together through a programme that seeks to commemorate the past, explore the continued persecutions of the present and encourage positive actions that will make a difference in the future.
