At 10.00 am this morning, on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz people gathered at Lowestoft Train Station to mark Holocaust Memorial Day. Before the annual service took place, drama students from Ormiston Denes School gave a moving performance of Suitcase 1938 in which they conveyed the separation, loss of family and isolation the children arriving on the Kindertransport Train at Lowestoft Station in 1938 experienced. The Mayor of Lowestoft, Councillor Alice Taylor, gave an address to a large audience and wreaths were laid by both the Mayor and Desaray Parish, the Chairperson of the Waveney Youth Council. A minute’s silence was led by Ben Parish from Lowestoft Community Church who concluded the service with a prayer from the Holocaust Memorial Trust.
