An invitation to Holocaust Memorial Day events
Friday 26th and Saturday 27th January 2018
Truro Cathedral

27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) remembering the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur and emerging events worldwide.

The Power of Words

‘I want to go on living even after my death! And that’s why I am so grateful to God for having given me this gift, which I can use to develop myself and to express all that’s in me. When I write I can shake off all my cares; my sorrow disappears; my spirits are revived.’
Anne Frank, written in her diary, 5 April 1944

Words can make a difference – both for good and evil.
Truro Cathedral is hosting a 2 day exhibition organised with colleagues from Devon and Cornwall Police and Cornwall Council.
Attendees will be able to explore the track to genocide, learn of the personal experiences of survivors of genocide and leave a message on our Tree of Hope. There will also be information stands from a number of organisations representing groups impacted by genocide.

A candle lighting ceremony will be held at 1pm on both days.
Exhibition opening times:
● Friday 26th January: 10am to 5.30pm
Followed by a Holocaust Memorial Day Evensong at 5.30pm and everyone is welcome to attend.
● Saturday 27th January: 10am to 3.30pm.

Please come along and feel free to pass this invitation on.
