Candle lit for Holocaust Memorial Day

Robert MacNeil, MBE, lit a candle at Lews Castle college, Stornoway this week to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

The retired forensic technician recalled the horrors of the Srebrenica massacre where he worked for a length of time on the poignant afternoon.

Business Development Coordinator at Lews Castle College UHI, Callum Iain Macmillan said: “The feedback we received from all those who attended was very positive and the people I talked to all said that they were glad that they’d come as it “opened their eyes “ not just to the Holocaust but to the continuing “ inhumanity” of religions, governments and terrorists to others. For reminding us of this alone made the event worthwhile.”
