Church Group Artwork Selected for Holocaust Exhibition

Thursday February 13 2020

A Glasgow church’s sewing group was ‘surprised and honoured’ to have an artwork selected for a Holocaust Memorial Day exhibition in London.

Holocaust Memorial Day is marked annually on January 27. This year, which commemorated the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust gathered 75 ‘flame’ art works from across Britain.

The piece by the Sew&Sews, a group from Kelvinbridge Parish Church, was one of three works chosen from Scotland, and the only one from a Scottish church group.

The exhibition was unveiled at the UK Commemorative Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day 2020, and will tour the UK.
