Holocaust Memorial Day to be marked in Christchurch

Dorset Council News Feed - 5 hours 42 min ago

Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 will be marked in Christchurch, with a commemoration service at The Captain’s Club Hotel followed by a Wreath Laying ceremony at the Holocaust Memorial site on the Quomps at Christchurch Quay.

The event will be held on Monday 28 January at 10am.

The Vicar of Christchurch, Reverend Canon Charles Stewart will begin the memorial before leading prayers alongside Rabbi Jesner, from the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation and the Bournemouth Reform Synagogue (BJCR).

Guests from the Royal British Legion and Royal Navy Association, along with school children from Christchurch Junior School, Priory School, Burton Primary School and Highcliffe St Mark School will also join the Mayor to lay wreaths at the Holocaust Memorial site.

Those in attendance attendees will have the honour of hearing first-hand stories from Benjamin Thomas. His mother was a refugee who was taken from her home in Germany on the St Louis, but was refused entry to the United States of America. Benjamin’s story captures the theme of Holocaust Memorial Day this year (‘Torn from Home’).

Reverend Canon Charles Stewart will lead the ‘Power of Words’ message, to help understand how language has impacted our lives in the past and up to modern day.

Cllr Lesley Dedman, Mayor of Christchurch said “I would ask that people in our comfortable Borough of Christchurch not only remember the horrors of the past Holocaust but think of those in our own time. I ask that we think of the victims slaughtered in present genocides, and also of people forced out of their homes by persecution, and that we reflect on their efforts to rebuild their lives.”

All are welcome to join the memorial event.

Further information about Holocaust Memorial Day can be accessed here: http://hmd.org.uk/

Man stabbed in Everest Court - enquiries continue

Leicestershire Police News Feed - 7 hours 27 min ago

Enquiries continue after a 19-year-old man was stabbed in Leicester.

An investigation by detectives is continuing following the incident, which happened in Everest Court at around 2.50am yesterday (Thursday 17 January).

Immediate enquiries led officers to identify two suspect vehicles, one of which failed to stop for police before colliding with railings in Scraptoft Lane. The other vehicle is still outstanding.

Two people, a 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were subsequently arrested in connection with the incident. They have since been released under investigation.

The victim was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham with non-life-threatening injuries.

A cordon which was in place at Everest Court to allow officers to carry out enquiries at the scene has since been removed.

Detective Sergeant George Fraser said: “While our investigation continues, I would urge anyone who was in Everest Court or the surrounding areas of St Matthews early on Thursday morning to come forward if they think they have any information that could help us.”

Call 101, quoting incident 31 of 17 January.
