On behalf of the South West Dorset Multicultural Network (SWDMN) we would like to invite you to attend their 12th annual Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) event on Friday 27th January 2017 at the Corn Exchange, Dorchester from 12.30 - 1.30 pm (doors open at noon).
The theme of this year's event is "How can life go on?" The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our responsibilities in the wake of such a crime and how life cannot go on properly unless the roots of problems are addressed. The event will conclude with the lighting of candles and a minute's silence.
Free refreshments will be available after the event. The Corn Exchange will open from midday to allow time to view displays and meet with members of the Network, before the event commences at 12.30pm.
