Holocaust Memorial Day Event 2023

19 January 2023

Friday 27 January 2023 marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and it’s a commemoration of victims of Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

This year colleagues from Chesterfield Equality and Diversity Forum and Chesterfield Borough Council are inviting us to attend an online Holocaust Memorial Day event.

The event, called ‘Ordinary People’, will take place on Friday 27 January 2023 from 10am to 11.45am, and will be hosted on Microsoft Teams.

This year’s guest speaker is Aida Salkic Haughton MBE, who is a survivor of the genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Aida’s first-hand testimony as a survivor of the Bosnian genocide and ethnic cleansing has shown to be a powerful tool for tackling hatred and building stronger communities.
