A SPECIAL Holocaust memorial service was held in Harwich for the first time following the unveiling of Harwich’s Kindertransport memorial.
Holocaust Memorial Day is commemorated every year on January 27 to honour the six million victims of the Holocaust.
The date is the anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1945.
Following the unveiling of the Kindertransport memorial at Harwich Quay last year, Harwich Town Council decided the site would be a fitting focal point for Holocaust Memorial Day.
