Spennymoor marks Holocaust Memorial Day

by deanranyard on 27 January, 2021

Today marks Holocaust Memorial Day. We remember the atrocities committed by the Nazi Regime in World War 2 where genocide numbering an estimated 11 million murders were committed including the killing of around 6 million Jews.

We remember those who suffered so much at the hands of this evil regime and the millions who had their lives taken from them.

Today in 1945 the soldiers fighting against the Germans took over the largest Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, and freed the prisoners there who were still alive.

Tonight Spennymoor Town Hall has been lit up in violet to mark Holocaust Memorial Day and to remember all those who died and suffered.
