Holocaust Memorial Day
"Wednesday 27th January marks Holocaust Memorial Day. This is an incredibly important event to remember those killed during the Holocaust and other genocides. The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 is "Be the light in the darkness" which in current circumstances also, contains a powerful message.
As we are restricted at the minute, there are several ways to still get involved in Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 from home and with family, which are mentioned on this presentation. Cooking, crafts, listening to survivor stories!
There will be a virtual "Light up the darkness" ceremony held at 7pm live on Wednesday evening which you can sign up through this link: https://www.hmd.org.uk/uk-holocaust-memorial-day-2021-ceremony/ and follow the ceremony.
These activities and taking part in Holocaust Memorial Day offer a real opportunity to honour the experiences of people affected by the Holocaust and genocide, and challenge ourselves to work for a safer, better future.
Any creations or experiences you take part in please email us with photos or thoughts as we'd love to hear them!
