Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau labour and death camps.
Our local Catholic community is invited to take part in a national project sponsored by the Holocaust Memorial Trust. Together with other communities around the country we will create a flame – (in our case, a candle) – with images of us – simple portraits – standing together, in solidarity with victims and survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides and persecutions.
All are welcome to take part – and no previous experience in drawing is necessary.
In our session we will learn a little about the Holocaust and consider how we relate to it, and then be guided in our attempt at portraiture by Tony Sawbridge and Geraldine Foster. All arts materials will be provided.
If you are interested please sign up in the porch for a session in the Benedict Room
from 1115 to 1.30pm on Tuesday 18th June – or contact Fr Allen.
