A SPECIAL service to commemorate the day when Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated by the Allies in 1945 will be held in Newport tomorrow (Sunday).

Hosted by the Salvation Army, the non-denominational service to mark National Holocaust Memorial Day will be held at the Salvation Army Hall, Pyle Street.

The service, open to everyone, will be held in memory of those who died as a result of genocide or holocausts.

It will include moving and thought-provoking film about Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur, the Nazi holocaust and other disturbing events, accompanied by short talks, with discussion.

The service will start at 10.30am.

A commemoration, with an exhibition, will begin at 2pm.

The exhibition will include posters, pictures and film on genocide and holocausts to view throughout the following week at the hall. Schools or colleges are invited to bring pupils to view the exhibits.
