Gibraltarians light a candle by their window to commemorate the Holocaust

Dozens of Jews and Non-Jews alike in Gibraltar lit a candle by their window to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Every year the Government of Gibraltar holds a civic memorial service at the Holocaust Memorial in Gibraltar’s central park.

This year, Covid restrictions, made this impossible. Instead, a Government sponsored programme, “Learning from Auschwitz” was screened at peak time TV.

The programme started with a message from Gibraltar’s Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo.
