Church service to mark Manx link to Holocaust

Sun, 20 Jan 2019

A service will be held on the Island next weekend to commemorate victims of the holocaust.

The 2019 Holocaust Memorial Commemoration will take place at St Mary of the Isle Church on Hill Street in Douglas from 3pm on Sunday 27th January.

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.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle will be among those to give a reading at the service.

Camps during WW2 were located in Douglas, Onchan, Peel, Port Erin, Port St Mary and Ramsey.

Holocaust Memorial Day is held in January each year to mark the date when the camps at Auschwitz in Nazi-occupied Poland were liberated in 1945.
