Holocaust Memorial Day
Friday, 27th January 2012
An event to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day took place in the Europa Gallery at Sutton Library on
27 January 2012 sponsored by the London Borough of Sutton. The event was attended by the Mayor of Sutton, Cllr Gerry Jerome, and other councilors and members of the executive of the London Borough of Sutton.
Among those taking part in helping to organize the event was our Chairman, Paul Sarfaty. Reverend Meir Lev made a very moving Memorial Prayer in Hebrew and English which was followed by a minute’s silence. Mr Marcel Ladenheim who is a Holocaust survivor, President of the Thames Lodge of Bnai Brith and a member of Kingston & Surbiton, spoke at length about his experiences as a child in Nazi Germany.
