Holocaust Memorial Day 2016: Don’t Stand By

Date: Sunday 24 January 2016
Time: 3.00pm to 4.30pm
Venue: Ashes Suite, Kia Oval, Kennington, London SE11 5SS (entrance via Alec Stewart Gate)

All welcome, no booking required, free entry

The Ashes Suite at the Kia Oval in Kennington will host the London Borough of Lambeth’s commemoration for Holocaust Memorial Day on Sunday 24 January 2016. This event will remember, honour and share stories from those persecuted in the Holocaust and the subsequent genocides. The theme for 2016 set by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is ‘Don’t Stand By’, which promotes a clear call to action in the present: focusing on the contemporary relevance of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, and considering our individual responsibilities not to be bystanders to hate crime and prejudice.

The audience will hear memorable words from Lord Alfred Dubs who travelled to the UK from Czechoslovakia on the Kindertransport rescue mission in 1939. Lord Dubs was a passenger on one of the first of Sir Nicholas Winton’s trains carrying 669 children to safety away from the Nazi regime to homes in Britain. There will also be poetry from Dunraven School, a film screening and musical contributions from the Corpus Christi School Choir.

The event will run from 3.00pm to 4.30pm with closing words from Dr Sarfraz Jeraj, Co-Chair of Lambeth Citizens and President of the Hyderi Islamic Centre.
