Trent Building turns purple for Holocaust Memorial Day

January 23rd, 2023

Trent Building will be lit up with purple lights on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 January to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

Holocaust Memorial Day offers time to remember the genocide of 6 million Jews murdered alongside millions of other people killed under Nazi persecution.

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day this year is ‘ordinary people’ and explores when ordinary people knew about what was happening, how ordinary people respond, how ordinary people can make a difference, how ordinary people stand by and how ordinary voices can galvanise governments to act.

Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration event

There will also be a commemoration event taking place at 6.30-8.30pm on Thursday 26 January in Keighton Auditorium on University Park.

University of Nottingham Chaplaincy and Faith Support are collaborating with Nottingham Trent University Faith to mark the day by taking the opportunity to learn about the past and discuss how we can create a safer future.
