This commemorative event is organised by the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton, and hosted by Solent University.

The Memorial Day is dedicated to the remembrance of victims who were persecuted as a result of genocide and discusses the discriminatory issues which society faces today. This year, the theme for Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day is ‘Stand Together’.

The Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Peter Baillie, will open the evening, which will feature a talk about the Holocaust and refugees from Dr Mark Levene, Emeritus Reader in History at the University of Southampton, followed by a question and answer session. There will also be reflective pieces from local sixth form students, music, and a drama performance by Solent University BA (Hons) Performance students.

Refreshments will be available directly after the event. Guests will have the opportunity to talk with the speakers before receiving Holocaust Memorial Day Trust literature and a memorial candle.

Further details and online registration via Eventbrite.
