NI will mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 with a series of events held in
libraries throughout Northern Ireland during January.
year’s theme, The Power of Words, explores
how language of the past has been shaped by propaganda, memoirs and words of
resistance. The theme also shines a light on words of today on social media,
newspapers and the conversations we hold. The events in libraries will be a mix
of drama, storytelling, creative writing and poetry.
Millar, Service Development Manager with Libraries NI explains:
NI is proud to support Holocaust Memorial Day. We hope that many people will
come along to the free events to keep alive the memories, stories and more
importantly the never to be forgotten lessons.”
Memorial Day is remembered each year on 27 January, when Auschwitz-Birkenau
concentration and death camp was liberated in 1945. On and around this time the
destruction caused by the Holocaust, together with more recent genocides and
persecutions, are remembered around the world.
All events are open to the public and admission is free.
