Victims of the Second World War Holocaust as well as subsequent genocides will be remembered at a special service.

A Holocaust Memorial Service is taking place in Norwich Cathedral on Friday January 26 between 11am-noon.

It is open to anyone and will be hosted by the Lord Mayor of Norwich, David Fullman, and the Dean of Norwich, the Very Rev Jane Hedges.

The service will be held in the nave of the cathedral.

People should arrive ten minutes before it starts.

Nationally, Holocaust Memorial Day will be held on Saturday January 27 - the anniversary of the 1945 liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland, where millions of people were killed by the Nazi regime.

Since it was first held in 2001, January 27 has been marked as a day to reflect and remember those murdered both in the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides including Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
