 In a quiet ceremony on a busy Saturday morning, Alfreton Town Council remembered the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
The Mayor councillor John Walker laid a wreath of red and white flowers at the War Memorial on King Street. A reading was given by assistant Town Clerk.
Councillor Walker said: “It is a momentous occasion and the first time we have marked Holocaust Day. It is also intended to remember and honour those who have died as a result of genocide since then.”
The Royal British Legion also took part in the wreath-laying, which is likely to become an annual event.
Many other local councils are beginning to commemorate Holocaust Day on January 27. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is based in London and supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

The Village Green will be officially opened and named the 'Centenary Green' at a small ceremony to be held on Friday 16th March 2018 at 11am at the entrance adjacent to Henry Crescent. Those involved in the creation of this space have been invited to attend along with the developers Wheeldon's to celebrate the benefits that this piece of land will bring to the residents of Alfreton. A community based opening will also take place in the summer.
The name 'Centenary Green' was chosen following the suggestion that the street names on the new housing development would be selected from the War Memorial to commemorate 100 years since WWI, the name links to that suggestion.
