» Holocaust Memorial Day

Recently the woman who found Anne Franks’ diary died aged 100 in the Netherlands. In an act of great courage and humanity Miep Gies, and other employees of Anne Frank’s father Otto supplied food to the family as they hid in a secret annex above the business premises in Amsterdam.

Anne’s diary of their life in hiding, which ended in betrayal, is one of the most famous records of the Holocaust.
Mrs Gies became a kind of ambassador for the diary, travelling to talk about Anne Frank and her experiences, campaigning against Holocaust denial and refuting allegations that the diary was a forgery.

27th January 2010 – Holocaust Memorial Day – marks the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. On this day, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is challenging everyone across the UK to become part of a Legacy of Hope. HMD 2010 offers an opportunity to listen to the voices from the Holocaust and to make the lessons of hope for a safer, inclusive society where the differences between us are respected a reality today and in the future.

Holocaust survivors have played an immense role in bringing our attention to the lessons of the Holocaust. They speak of pain and loss, of strength and survival, of despair and their wish for a Legacy of Hope.

In the University we are invited to remember those who were persecuted and murdered, and to symbolise our hope for an inclusive society by lighting a candle. You can either do so by going to the Chaplaincy Room at the Tramsheds building in Glyntaf between 12 and 2 or by lighting a virtual candle by clicking on the white candle in the centre of the ‘Legacy of Hope’ screen which will appear.
You can also watch a short presentation

On Tuesday 27th January National Holocaust Memorial Day will be commemorated. The theme for this year is ‘Stand Up to Hatred.’
You will remember that earlier this month we made a stand by holding a response to the situation in Gaza by lighting candles as a sign of solidarity.

We are asking you to come and make a stand with us again as we commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day. On 27th January between 1 and 2 pm there will be an opportunity for people to call in for as long as they want and light a candle for those who suffered in the Holocaust and all those who still suffer today from hatred.

This will take place at Treforest by the Union Shop and in Glyntaf at the Chaplaincy Room in the Tramsheds Building.

We are also running the same event in the Atrium on 30th January between 3 and 4 p.m. in Room CA 321

If you would like us to light a candle, at any of these events please leave your name in the comments section of this blog post by 11 am on 27th and we will light one for you.

If you would like to light a candle we can also deliver a candle to you, if you let us know in the comments section of this post.
