Yom HaShoah Event

Updated: Apr 29, 2022

Glad to be at a very moving #YomHaShoah event in Giffnock Synagogue this evening. I very much enjoyed the wonderful music, including from the Calderwood Lodge Primary School Choir.

It was extraordinary to hear of the heroism of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, former Portuguese Consul, whose brave actions in disobeying orders saved countless Jewish lives. Congratulations to Silverado and Olivia who spoke so powerfully.

Many thanks to Glasgow Jewish Representative Council - GJRC, supporting organisations, and the Organizing Committee of this excellent and very thought provoking event.
