Local councillors were amongst those who gathered to commemorate National Holocaust Memorial Day this morning. The service at Highfields Memorial Garden was led by Mayor Councillor Barbara Price.

Members of The Royal British Legion, The Royal Air Force Association and The Federation of Birmingham Ex Service Associations were in attendance for the event to remember the millions of victims of Nazi persecution and all genocide.

The theme of this year's Holocaust Memorial Day is "Don't Stand By" and attendees pledged that the Holocaust would have a permanent place in our nation's collective memory, that we will honour survivors still with us and strengthen our efforts to promote education to make sure that the lessons of the past are fully learnt.
