With fighting, hated and discrimination still present in the world, it is vital that we never forget some of the horrors of the past, and keep working to prevent them occurring again.
Holocaust Memorial Day is an annual event (27th January) dedicated to the remembrance of Holocaust victims.
This year, there are three events in Haringey to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.
There is the annual multi faith commemorative gathering, taking place on the 26th January at Bruce Castle Museum.
There will also be an exhibition at libraries across Haringey about the role of the Righteous Muslims in the 2nd World War. The exhibition starts at Highgate Library on Monday 13 January for 2 weeks and then moves to the libraries at Muswell Hill, Alexandra Park, Coombes Croft, St Ann’s and Stroud Green & Harringay.
And on the 4th Feb, Muswell Hill is hosting a one woman performance of Etty – a play about Etty Hillesum before she is first deported to Westerbork and later Auschwitz.
All events are free. For further info about the events and bookings, please see the poster here.
