In a statement the Red Cross said the collection was "of great value not only as an archive but also as a museum monument and a tangible reminder of the Holocaust".The cards had been digitalised in 2012 and are available for viewing online upon specific request for a name or other identifying detail. The service will be led by Cheshire East mayor, Councillor Barry Burkhill. The chosen date is the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp by the Soviet Union in 1945.

The theme for this year's Holocaust Memorial Day commemorations is "Be The Light In The Darkness". The objective of the day is to encourage remembrance of victims of genocide worldwide, including honouring the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, the millions of people killed under Nazi persecution and in the genocides that have happened since in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

The Holocaust resulted in the annihilation of an estimated six million Jews, two million Gypsies, 15,000 homosexual people and millions of others by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.
