Hundreds will pause in silent tribute to remember the millions of people killed during the Holocaust.

Barnet Council will mark Holocaust Memorial Day with a service at Middlesex University, in The Burroughs, on Sunday, January 19.

The theme of this year’s service will be Journeys, and the theme will explore the journeys which ended in death, escape, to new countries and new lives.

Pupils from Mill Hill County High School, who have recently visited Auschwitz, will also attend the event.

Lord Dubs of Battersea, who came to the UK from Prague on the Kindertransport in 1939, and Mayor Councillor Melvin Cohen will all be present at the event.

Cllr Cohen: “Holocaust Memorial Day is always a poignant opportunity to remember those who lost their lives during the Holocaust and in other genocides.

“This year’s theme of journeys will no doubt give us all a thought provoking insight into the many people experiences of those who have suffered persecution.”

The Alyth Youth Singers and the london Cantorial Singers will perform as part of the service, and music will be provided by the Hendon Band of the Salvation Army.

Entry to the ceremony is free.

The event will begin at 1pm and attendees are asked to be seated by 12.45pm. Doors open at 12:15pm.
