Light 'virtual candle' for Holocaust Memorial Day

January 21, 2010

In the run-up to Holocaust Memorial Day on Wednesday, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is urging people to become involved by “lighting” a virtual candle at the website.

Organisers say this will signify “a commitment to helping build a safer, inclusive society where differences are respected”.

This year’s theme is “The Legacy of Hope” and marks the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration camp. Events will be held throughout the country.
