Monday 25 April 2022

Holocaust Memorial Day will be marked in Guernsey on Thursday 28th April to align with the Yom HaShoah commemoration which is the recognised commemoration date in Israel and other countries.

Holocaust Memorial Day will be marked in Guernsey on Thursday 28th April to align with the Yom HaShoah commemoration which is the recognised commemoration date in Israel and other countries.

The day remembers the victims of the Holocaust and other acts of genocide both in Guernsey and around the world and serves to ensure that its lessons are learned by future generations.

A memorial service, led by the Very Reverend Tim Barker, will be held at 12 o'clock at the White Rock memorial next to North Beach.

The service will start at the memorial to the slave labourers with an introduction to the commemoration, a prayer and the laying of a wreath.  The service will then move to the memorial to the Guernsey Eight and keep silence there before a prayer of recollection and the laying of a second wreath.  The commemoration will conclude at the memorial to the three Jewish women with the laying of a third wreath.

The service is open to all islanders regardless of religious affiliation.
