Holocaust Memorial Day

27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day, a day to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution and in the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On Holocaust Memorial Day we honour the survivors of these regimes. The day is particularly significant because 27th January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. It is so important that we never forget the atrocities of genocides of the past. Thousands of people will come together at activities across the UK on 27th January to remember the past and consider how we can challenge hatred and create a better future. Activities will be taking place all over the country, and you can find out more about how you can mark the day here-
