Holocaust Memorial Service
‘An Exposition of Despair and Hope’ is a commemoration in words and music to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
This community-led event will feature sensitively chosen songs, instrumental music, poems, quotations and explanatory narrative, commemorating the Holocaust of the Jews, and other genocides and atrocities.
Led by readers Juliet Brain and Michael O’Connell, the programme includes:
* Brief talks about Sudan, the Holocaust of the Jews and peace and reconciliation work in Rwanda by local experts the Revd Canon Ian Woodward, Fiona Hulbert and the Revd Wendy Cooper
– New Sarum Singers and friends, Director the Revd Keith Thomasson
– St Thomas’s Community Recorder Group
– Pianist Christopher Guild
– Mezzo Susan Mackenzie-Park.
On display will be a floral tribute by florist Michael Bowyer to the many communities persecuted under the Nazi regime.
The event will remember, acknowledge and pay tribute to, those individuals and communities affected by past genocides, and will look hopefully towards reconciliation and peace for those still living.
Entrance to the commemoration is free, with a retiring collection to defray costs, and to make a donation to the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
Tea and honey-cake will be served after the event.
