The 27th January marks Holocaust Memorial Day – and this has been remembered here in Suffolk.

Services and events of remembrance took place in east Suffolk, remembering the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust in World War 2 – as well as other acts of genocide, such as in Rwanda and Cambodia. 

Lowestoft’s Railway Station was the venue for a memorial service, which included speeches from Town Mayor Councillor Alan Green and Peter Aldous MP.

At Kensington Gardens in Lowestoft, a new bench was being officially unveiled by the Town Council to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

In Southwold, the day was marked at the town’s Arts Centre, with speeches and films.
