Enfield Council marked Holocaust Memorial Day last night (24th January) with a conference at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield.

Holocaust Memorial Day is remembered each year on 27th January, which was the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945.

The programme is inspired by the national theme, "Torn from Home", which reflected on individuals, families and communities driven out of their homes because of persecution or the threat of genocide.

The event featured real life testimony from survivors of The Holocaust and the Rwandan Genocide, and readings from the Enfield Poets. A number of our students also read Renee Bornstein and Marie Chantal Uwamahoro’s Life Stories.
