Stockport supports Holocaust Memorial Day

Stockport Council supports Holocaust Memorial Day on Friday 27th January.

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 is ‘How can life go on?’

Libraries in Bramhall, Cheadle, Hazel Grove, Marple and Stockport Central Library will be creating book displays beginning on the 23rd Jan building up to the day on the 27th. All libraries in Stockport will be displaying posters to provide customers with information about Holocaust Memorial Day.

People will also be able to access the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website to learn more about the Holocaust and the Trust, via the free PCs available in every library.

Councillor Alex Ganotis, the Leader of Stockport Council, said: “Holocaust Memorial Day is about educating people about the dangers of anti-Semitism, racism and all other forms of discrimination.

“Stockport is supporting the day on 27th January, the date in 1945 when the allies liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration camp.”
