Stroud’s Jewish residents mark Holocaust Memorial Day and challenge antisemitism

MOST READ

A group of Jewish residents of Stroud and their friends gathered to promote Holocaust Memorial Day (held annually on January 27th) and challenge what they described as ‘racism and support for Holocaust denial’ in a publication handed out on Stroud High Street on a weekly basis.

The group gave out leaflets from a stall on the corner of High Street and Kendrick Street, held placards opposing the publication, and talked to people about the Holocaust and Holocaust Memorial Day – which is held on January 27th every year.

The event included music by Stroud’s Red Band. A Holocaust Memorial Day event will be held tomorrow, Sunday, January 30th, at 2pm in Park Gardens, featuring speeches and readings, together with performances of anti-fascist songs.
