Residents in Corby are invited to mark Holocaust Memorial Day with Corby Borough Council this Sunday (26th January).

Holocaust Memorial Day falls on the 27th January every year and is a time for everyone to pause and remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust.

The commemorative event, which will be held in the Council Chamber in the Corby Cube from 1pm, is an open invitation to all and will be the chance for you to see a webcast provided by the Holocaust Education Trust along with a live testimony of Auschwitz-Birkenau Survivor Susan Pollack MBE.

Mayor of Corby, Cllr Ray Beeby, said:

‘This event is something that we have been organising for many years now and something that we feel is very important to mark.

‘We hope that residents will join us and help us commemorate the lives of the millions of men, women and children who have been affected by the Holocaust and other terrible genocides around the world.

‘By remembering and realising how people suffered through these atrocities we can hopefully help prevent anything like this happening again.’
