<div>Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, as you may know. I thought that you may like to see what official things are happening today. Here is the text from the website page for this annual event.</div><div>https://www.hmd.org.uk/uk-<wbr></wbr>holocaust-memorial-day-2021-<wbr></wbr>ceremony/
</div><div><font color="#000000">The UK Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 ceremony will be streamed online at 7pm. This will be our first fully digital ceremony.
</font></div><div>

<font color="#000000">Watch here</font>

<font color="#000000">The ceremony will run from 7–8pm.</font>

<font color="#000000">At 8pm, get ready to Light the Darkness with us. Households across the UK will be lighting candles and safely putting them in their windows to:</font>

<ul><li><font color="#000000">remember those who were murdered for who they were</font></li><li><font color="#000000">stand against prejudice and hatred today</font></li></ul>

<font color="#000000">Light a candle and put it in your window at 8pm on 27 January 2021 (if you are able to do so safely).</font>

</div><div>Obviously you will have to go to the website address above to watch the live steam. And as you can see from above the scope of today is wider than just the WW2 Holocaust, and is very relevant to today</div>
