Holocaust Memorial Day at Plymouth College of Art on Friday 27th January 2012

HMD 2012 speak up speak out

Speak Up Speak Out

10am – 7pm “The Others”

A one day only exhibition of students’ work, born from a visit students made earlier this year to Auschwitz, the Nazi death camp in Poland.

What brings us closer together, what drives us further apart? Who are “the others?” The themes of tolerance – culture – relationships and discrimination are explored through a variety of different media.

The exhibition is free and open to all.

Between 5pm – 7pm  –  see the exhibition and enjoy some tea, coffee, nibbles and sweets which will be available prior to the annual evening event…

7pm – 8pm in the College’s Lecture Theatre

An Evening of Reflection for Holocaust Memorial Day

“Speak up – Speak out”


The Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr. Edward Delbridge and the Deputy Lady Mayoress Cllr. Lynda Bowyer will be joined by students and guests for an evening of reflection, through words and music.

“We are as big or as small as the space we make for others who are not like us”

Lord Sacks

Friday January 27th 2012

The Plymouth Hebrew Congregation, the Plymouth Church Leaders Meeting, the Plymouth Centre for Faith and Cultural Diversity and Plymouth City Council invite you to a ceremony of remembrance for Holocaust Memorial Day at the memorial tree in the English Garden at Mount Edgcumbe, at 12.30 p.m.

Our thoughts will be led first by The Deputy Lord Mayor of Plymouth. Rev. Chris Clewer, Chair of Churches Together in Plymouth will speak next. He will be followed by Barbara Hickling a Buddhist and member of Plymouth Sangha. A member of the Jewish community will speak last.  The words will be relatively brief. There will be silences in between – a time to reflect. The ceremony will be quite short, but none the less meaningful for that. The Deputy Lady Mayoress will lay flowers at the foot of the tree.

Please come if you possibly can. You may wish to travel on the Cremyll ferry. The ferry leaving Plymouth at 12.15 p.m. will get you there just in time but you might prefer to take the one before that at 11.45 a.m.  Allow time to park. There are not many spaces in the Cremyll car park. You might like to go to Devil’s Point and walk back.

  1. Until I discovered this article I thought Plymouth had forgotten about HMD – well done to those behind this blog for sharing!
