Westminster Synagogue has two Torah scrolls on loan from the Memorial Scrolls Trust, both from Bohemia in the Czech Republic, one from Horažd’ovice and the other from Přeštice.  Each year, the Synagogue organises a comemmorative event between 23rd and 26th November to remember the lives of those people who were burtally murdered simply because they were Jewish.
