A special ceremony will be held for Holocaust Memorial Day.

The service, which is open to the public will be attended by the Mayor of Sefton, Cllr June Burns on Sunday, January 26, at Christ Church, Lord Street, Southport at 1.30pm.

The Council acknowledges this milestone year as 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz -Birkenau concentration camp in Poland.

Councillors and council officers will attend the memorial ceremony in Southport as well as members of the public.

All will take part in a minute’s silence.

The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr June Burns, said: “It is so important that each year we join others around the world to take a moment of reflection to remember those who endured genocide and honour the survivors whose lives were changed forever.



“At the annual service in Southport, our diverse communities will stand together to demonstrate how lessons from the past have taught us that prejudice must be challenged by us all.

“We would like as many people as possible to attend so if you have the time, please join us to mark this day.”

The service in Southport is open to everyone, with refreshments served at the end.
