Suffolk Holocaust Memorial Day Event 27th January 2021
Video will available from 1.00 pm
Suffolk County Council Youtube Channel
The theme for the 2021 Holocaust Memorial Day is “Be the Light in the darkness” and 27 January has been designated as HMD by the Holocaust memorial Trust. As in the previous three years, arrangements for the Suffolk-wide event are being co-ordinated by the Ipswich Faith and Community Forum (IFCF).
Due to COVID restrictions, the event this year will be held in virtual mode. Contributions have been received from Ipswich Mayor’s Office, Jewish Community Ipswich Borough Council, Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Refugee Support, Suffolk Constabulary, Northgate High School, and several members of the local community.
The event video, of about an hour’s duration will be streamed on the Suffolk County Council YouTube Channel on the 27 January 2021 at 1.00 pm.
All our supporters from previous years who have participated in the event at Suffolk University are encouraged to link up on 27 January @1.00 pm. This year’s format gives us the opportunity to reach a much wider audience and in particular, all schools in Suffolk are encouraged to share in the event which brings the message of hope to us all in this particular period of difficulty.
2020 IFCF EVENTS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
