Remembering those who lived and died during the Blitz

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 18/04/2016

The ecumenical service in St Anne's Cathedral yesterday was a fitting way to remember those who died in the awful German Luftwaffe Blitz on Belfast 75 years ago this weekend.

We should never forget the courage and forbearance of the people who had to face the challenges of those dreadful times, nor the devastating loss in our capital city.

Looking at the old black and white images, so many of our bombed street are still recognisable.

This strengthens our connection with what took place, and somehow makes it even more intimate and affecting.
