Holocaust Memorial Day service in Haywards Heath - in pictures
To mark Holocaust Memorial Day today (Monday, January 27), Amnesty International and Haywards Heath Town Council held a special outdoor remembrance service.
Mayor Alastair McPherson led a procession of local school children from Haywards Heath Town Hall to the war memorial for the service. Members of the Jewish community, other faith groups and the public solemnly marked the Holocaust with prayers, hymns, readings and poetry. Irene Balls, chair of Amnesty International Haywards Heath and former Haywards Heath Mayor said: “It is vital that the genocide of Jewish people is never ever forgotten." A full report will be online tomorrow (Tuesday, January 28).
