Holocaust Memorial Day

January 27, 2016

Holocaust Memorial Awareness Day Logo

Holocaust Memorial Day is a world recognised day to remember the lives lost in the Holocaust genocide carried out by NAZI Germany. In the UK, The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is the leading charity that promotes education and learning through Holocaust Memorial Day. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website states:

The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity which promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). 27 January is the day for everyone to remember the millions of people killed in the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.

The theme of Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 on January 27th will be ‘Don’t Stand By’. According to the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website:

The Holocaust and subsequent genocides took place because the local populations allowed insidious persecution to take root. Whilst some actively supported or facilitated state policies of persecution, the vast majority stood by silently – at best, afraid to speak out; at worst, indifferent. Bystanders enabled the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides.

You can find out more about 2016’s Holocaust Memorial Day theme here.

There are many local Holocaust Memorial Day events run by regional Trusts throughout the UK. Find more information here:
