The 75th Anniversary of Auschwitz Liberation provided the most somber back drops to Wigan Holocaust Memorial Day Celebrations.
Remembrance events took place in the Derby Room at Leigh Turnpike Gallery and The Fire Within HQ in Wigans Galleries. Taking part were not only members of Wigan Rotary Club but also school and other groups
St John Fisher RC High School performed drama, dance and music and Wigan Sacred Heart RC Primary School sang in Leigh. Readings were also given by Wigan Rotarians and by Members of the Leigh Paper Back Writers, both of whom provided moving and and emotional tributes to all those who have suffered because of man's inhumanity to man.
Members of Wigan Rotary Club were very proud to organise the two Civic Events in Wigan and Leigh on Holocaust Memorial Day as people across Europe came together to remember the millions of people, who have died in the Holocaust and also as a result of genocide across time and place.
