More than 200 people paid their respects to the victims of the Holocaust at a special service in Northampton last night (Monday, January 27).

The Holocaust Memorial Day service at the Guildhall had speakers from Northampton Borough Council, Northamptonshire Police, Northampton Inter-Faith Forum, and performances from schoolchildren with the theme of 'stand together'.

The event also marked 75 years since the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp during the Second World War, as well as remembering victims of later genocides.

The blowing of the Shofar and memorial prayers, led by the Northampton Hebrew Congregation, ended the poignant occasion.
