Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day is dedicated to the remembrance of victims who were persecuted as a result of genocide and discusses the discriminatory issues which society faces today. This year, Southampton will be marking the UK’s national Holocaust and Genocide Memorial Day, in which the theme is 'Torn from Home'.  Organised by the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton, and hosted by Solent University, the evening will be opened by The Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Stephen Barnes-Andrews. This will then be followed by reflective pieces from local sixth form students, a short film, music, and a drama performance by Solent University BA (Hons) Performance students. Refreshments will be available directly after the event, and guests will have the opportunity to talk with the speakers before receiving Holocaust Memorial Day Trust literature and a memorial candle.
