Boys Perform at Holocaust Memorial Day

  • Holocaust Memorial Day 2019.jpg

Bolton's annual Civic Commemoration for Holocaust Memorial Day proved a very moving event, presided over by Reverend Canon Dr Chris Bracegirdle, Vicar of Bolton. The Mayor, several Councillors and many of Bolton's religious leaders of all faiths were present, alongside children and staff from several local primary and secondary schools and members of the public.

The service began with the Boys' Division Violin Quartet playing ‘Cantabile’ by Nardini and after the candle lighting ceremony, the quartet played ‘Lift Thine Eyes’ by Mendelssohn. This was followed by a number of poignant readings presented by pupils from other schools and religious leaders. 

Artwork, provided by Bolton School boys in Years 8-13, which commemorated the victims and survivors of the Holocaust, was also displayed at the event at the Festival Hall in the Town Hall. You can read about the creation of this artwork here.
