Kent Equality Cohesion Council working in partnership with Dartford Borough Council have arranged an event to mark International Holocaust Memorial Day. The event will take place on the day itself, Monday 27th January at the Civic Centre in Dartford between 2pm and 3pm. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a significant milestone and is made particularly poignant by the dwindling number of survivors who are able to share their testimony. It also marks the 25th anniversary of the Genocide in Bosnia.
Gurvinder Sandher, CEO of the KECC commented “I think it’s important that we come together to remember these horrific episodes in our history, as by keeping the memory alive and not allowing them to fade, can we ensure that history does not repeat itself. I am very grateful to our partners Dartford Borough Council for working with us to deliver this event.”
