Holocaust service takes place this weekend

A service is being held on the Island this weekend to commemorate victims of holocaust.

The 2017 Holocaust Memorial Commemoration will take place at St Mary of the Isle Church on Hill Street in Douglas from 2.45pm tomorrow (Sunday).

The event is described as multi-generational, multi ethnic and multi denominational, remembering men, women and children who have died in various holocausts throughout history.

The Government, who has organised the service, says it is its duty to bring people together to commemorate injustices and to educate the young.
