Holocaust Memorial Day, 27 January, has taken place in the UK since 2001. Each year, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust chooses a different theme to enable audiences on Holocaust Memorial Day to learn something new about the past, and to make it easier for HMD activity organisers to create fresh and engaging activities. Every theme is relevant to the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and to each subsequent genocide. This year’s theme is the power of words.

More detailed information and advice can be provided by our subject specialist: Paul Bowers.
