North East Herts MP Oliver Heald attended the Holocaust Memorial Day Service held in Howard Park, Letchworth with Rabbi Garber leading the service and with contributions from Ali Sharif representing Muslims, Christine Kell representing Quakers, Mr Sandhu representing Sikhs and Christians being represented by Father O’Brien.
Commenting, Oliver said “This was a moving service, particularly marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The theme of the service was standing together and respect. I was pleased that so many local people came to the service to ensure that the brutality of the holocaust and other genocide must not happen again.”
Afterwards there was a reception at Gernon Road where the photograph was taken.
