Holocaust Memorial Day in Dorchester

Holocaust Memorial Day takes place annually on 27th January and this year a ceremony took in Dorchester’s Corn Exchange on Friday 26th January. The event was organised by Dorchester Town Council and the South-West Dorset Multicultural Network, with the support of Dorset Council and Kushti Bok. It was a time to remember the millions of people who died during the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution, and in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. The moving ceremony was recorded by KeeP 106 presenter Rob Mott and is reproduced below. Either select an item from the list to listen to, or just click the Play button for a continuous playback…
