First Minister confirms Armagh will host National Holocaust Memorial Day 2017

Armagh has been chosen as the host city for a major event to mark National Holocaust Memorial Day.

This will be the key event in Northern Ireland to remember those who died.

It is being led by the Stormont Executive and a budget has been set aside, as well as staffing resources to assist in the organisation.

First Minister Arlene Foster says plans are “well advanced”.

An advisory group, made up of representatives of those affected by the Holocaust and subsequent genocides, has been established and has already met on three occasions since September to plan the event.
