County Hall in Haverfordwest will be lit in purple tomorrow (Thursday, January 27) for Holocaust Memorial Day.

Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, and remembers the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust and everyone killed in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

The theme of this year’s commemoration is One Day, and County Hall will join other prominent buildings across the UK by being lit in purple.

Cllr Mike James, Chairman of Pembrokeshire County Council, said: “As we remember the horrors of the past on Holocaust Memorial Day, County Hall bathed in purple will serve as both a mark of respect and a symbol of hope for the future.”

Council Leader Cllr David Simpson, added: “Holocaust Memorial Day is a day to remember the horror that man has inflicted on fellow man but also reflect on how light can come from the darkness, a sentiment that remains particularly poignant right now.”
