Holocaust Memorial Day Service – 27 January 2019

Holocaust Memorial Day Service

A moving and poignant service an laying of wreaths at the Basingstoke and Deane War Memorial.  The theme “Torn from Home” does indeed encourage us to reflect on how the enforced loss of a safe place to call home is part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing persecution and genocide.  With so much going on all around, it is important that we have these “moments” when we can reflect on both how lucky we all are, and also how easy it is to look the other way at key moments.
