A service commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day will take place on 27 January, hosted by the University’s Multi Faith Chaplaincy. The service is open to all and will include readings, reflection, and a poetry reading from the International Student Association and Students’ Union.
This year, as the University of Lincoln commemorates Holocaust Memorial Day, we take time to reflect on, not only the persecutions and genocide of the six million Jews under the Nazis, but also on the genocides that followed across the world. We will also reflect on all endangered peoples now, today, facing life-threatening state violence in our society.
The University of Lincoln does not tolerate anti-Semitism, racism, discrimination or hate. By recognising the past atrocities, genocides and ethnic cleansing of people and their cultures around the world, and acknowledging and fighting against the increasing climate of intolerance, prejudice and hate that have shocked the world in 2020, we hope to build a future where discrimination is actively rejected.
We hope you will join us and 'be the light in the darkness' as we come together as One Community to reflect and learn from the past to inspire a brighter future.
