Hundreds of people, young and old, came together to remember the victims of one of the worst genocides in history.

A special service took place on Monday, January 27, to mark this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day, which had a national theme of ‘Journeys’ – relating to the journeys travelled by victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.
