Holocaust Memorial Day civic ceremony
January 31 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Please join us for the civic commemoration, which will be an uplifting community event illustrated with songs, poetry, music, art, dance. It will be an online event commencing at 5pm on Sunday 31st January. HistoryWorks is producing the Holocaust Memorial Commemoration on behalf of the Mayor and Cambridge City Council. Michael Rosen and Holocaust Survivor, Eva Clarke will be our narrators. To join in we’ll ask people to have a candle ready to light if they wish as a way of bringing the community together virtually. We’ll have the online event launched at 5pm on Sunday at 5pm HERE.
The civic event will be a free online event, on Sunday 31st January starting at 5pm, and we hope that many individuals and households across Cambridge will join us. There are several ways you can participate before-hand (find details HERE) by joining the virtual choir to sing We Are One World, making artworks to exhibit as part of the ceremony,writing a poem or song or rap, donating to our fundraising for refugees and people experiencing homelessness in Cambridge, or putting up a picture saying HOPE in your front window.
Viewing the event online you can reflect on the Holocaust commemoration when you’ll hear new poems by Michael Rosen, watch dances, hear songs, view artwork, listen to testimony from those who’ve experienced the Holoaust, and you yourself can join in by lighting a candle at home when I’ll do so as your Mayor, and will invite everyone at home to do so too!”
