Holocaust Memorial Day event, Church Street, Warwick
In a local tradition that stretches over the last twenty years Holocaust Memorial Day on 27th January was marked at the Warwick War Memorial in Church Street with a special open air service of prayers and poetry readings. Children and teachers from five local schools joined together with members of the wider public and civic dignitaries from the Town, District and County Councils led by the Mayor of Warwick. In doing this Warwick joins towns, cities and schools all over the world in spending some moments remembering the victims and horror of genocides and holocausts over the last century. The prayers were led by Father Patrick Mileham. The pieces that were read were very moving reminding us all of the terrible things that can happen when understanding and tolerance are replaced by persecution and victimisation.
Pupils from All Saints and Coten End primary schools joined students from Aylesford, Myton, Warwick and Kings High schools to read and listen to poems and readings about the holocaust in WW2 and subsequent genocides. Back in the schools over the last week there have been special assemblies and projects.
The Mayor of Warwick, Cllr Richard Edgington, laid a wreath of white flowers. Then the moving ceremony concluded with the two minutes’ silence, the Memorial Prayer for the Victims of the Shoah, and the Blessing.
