People in Gwynedd will join with thousands the world over this month to remember the innocent victims of genocides which plague modern history during a service of remembrance that will be held at Siambr Dafydd Orwig, Gwynedd Council Headquarters Caernarfon on Friday, 27 January 2017. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the loss of life by genocide during the Second World War and during later conflicts in Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda and Darfur. Holocaust Memorial Day aims to motivate people to ensure that the horrendous crimes committed during the Holocaust and in more recent genocides, are neither forgotten nor repeated, whether in Europe or elsewhere in the world. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Chairman of Gwynedd Council, Councillor Eric Jones said: “Everyone is welcome to attend this service at Siambr Dafydd Orwig, and join thousands of people across the world to honour the past and build a safer, fairer world.” ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The service will be held at Siambr Dafydd Orwig, Gwynedd Council Headquarters, Shirehall Street, Caernarfon at 10.30am on Friday, 27 January 2017. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
