St. Barnabas Church

Victims of the Holocaust and genocides worldwide will be remembered at a special service in Middlesbrough.

The Holocaust Commemoration Service takes place at St Barnabas Church in St Barnabas Road, Middlesbrough on Sunday, January 29 at 1pm.

Attending the ceremony will be the Tees area’s MPs, Mayor of Middlesbrough Ray Mallon and Mayors from Stockton, Thornaby, Redcar and Cleveland, Hartlepool and Darlington.

Councillors, war veterans, combined services and families of Holocaust victims will also be in attendance.
