Marking Holocaust Memorial Day
The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 is 'Torn from Home'. This fits well with Amnesty International's global campaign 'I Welcome Refugees'. To mark the day, the Minehead AI Local Group is hosting a drop in session where people are invited to come in to read about the genocides that continue to take place in the world, to reflect and write a card, to light a candle, and to find out more about Amnesty campaigns and also the work of the West Somerset Refugee Support Group. The event takes place on Thursday 24 January between 1200 and 1400 at the Quaker Meeting House, Bancks Street, Minehead. All are welcome to join us to remember this important date and to share in coffee and cake.
From 21 January to 2 February, there will be a special exhibition to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) at Minehead Library on Bancks Street, Minehead. The exhibition will include a display of HMD materials, information about Amnesty International and a linked selection of books. This will be available to view during normal library opening hours.
