York Holocaust Memorial Day Civic Event
January 27, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pmFree
Join us for York’s annual Holocaust Memorial Day Civic Event, a free online event, reflecting on the national theme for 2021, Be the Light in the Darkness.
Hosted by the Lord Mayor of York and the Vice-Chancellor of The University of York, this event will feature short talks by The Archbishop of York, Student Rabbi Gabriel Kanter-Webber and keynote speaker and author of When Time Stopped, Ariana Neumann.
Through speakers and short films, we will reflect on the depths that humanity can sink to, alongside ways in which individuals and communities have resisted that darkness to be the light before, during and after genocide and persecution.
We can all stand in solidarity. We can choose to be the light in the darkness in many ways and places – at home, in public, and online.
