Speak Up, Speak Out

This evening, at Hyndland Parish Church, there was a special event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. As part of the evening, pupils with extraordinary musical talent from local secondary schools provided a varied programme of classical music. 

The organisers were two local pupils who made a visit with other young people from across the West of Scotland to Auschwitz, last November. They shared their experiences and projected images of the concentration camps taken on their trip.  It is the 67th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Camp this year.

The recent genocides in Rwanda and Darfur were also remembered by a representative of Amnesty International. 

I was glad to be able to support this event and link up with young people promoting peace.
