Speak Up, Speak Out - Holocaust Memorial Day 2012

Speak Up, Speak Out to create a safer, better future is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2012.

Those that live and work in the borough are invited to join in the commemorative event which takes place at 10.30am on Friday January 27 at the Council Chambers, Hackney Town Hall.

This year’s theme is about making choices and the implications of both choosing to speak out and not speaking up against injustice and hatred; and our rights and responsibilities in challenging what is wrong.

The ceremony will be led by the Speaker of Hackney, Councillor Susan Fajana-Thomas. Spaces are limited; to reserve a place in advance please contact Richa Kataria, Speaker’s Office, Room 72, Hackney Town Hall, Mare Street, E8 1EA or telephone: 020 8356 3350 or email:
