 To mark Holocaust Memorial Day on Monday, 27 January, Haywards Heath Amnesty International and the Town Council held a special outdoor remembrance service. Mayor Alastair McPherson led a procession of local school children from the Town Hall to the war memorial for the service. Members of the Jewish community, other faith groups, schoolchildren and the public solemnly marked the Holocaust with prayers, hymns, readings and poetry. Irene Balls, chair of HH Amnesty International and a former Mayor said: “It is vital that the victims of genocide are never ever forgotten. It has been a pleasure to work with the civic authorities on this commemoration and I would particularly like to thank Martin Morgan of our local AI group for his energy and wisdom in pulling together the order of service.”
