27 January

Today, 27 January, is Holocaust Memorial Day. To mark this annual occasion West Lothian Council have created this video which includes spoken contributions by Council Leader Lawrence Fitzpatrick and Provost Tom Kerr, as well as from guest speaker Lord Julian Goodman of the Edinburgh Hebrew Congregation.


The video focuses on this year's theme for reflection which is "One Day" and suggests some different ways this might be interpreted.

You can find out more about these significant but tragic historic events via the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust's website, where you will find lots of stories, pictures and other helpful resources
