Candles lit to remember millions of Holocaust victims

 

As Vice Chair of the Bournemouth and Poole Holocaust Memorial Day committee, its been a huge honor and privilege for me to contribute and co-organise the Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration.  This year, once again hundreds of people gathered at Bournemouth International Centre to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. Around 500 members of the community looked on as seven candles were lit in memory of seven million people murdered in atrocities across the world. It was a solemn moment as they watched the candles being lit as the theme song from the emotive Schindler’s List played over the sound system.
