Would you run an event to mark Holocaust Memorial Day in 2018?

This week, I attended the Holocaust Memorial Day Parliamentary Reception, organised by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.

27 January is the day for everyone to remember the millions murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. HMD is a day to honour the survivors of these atrocities and learn the lessons of their experiences to challenge hatred and discrimination in the UK today.

At the Parliamentary Reception, the HMD Trust issued a call for any organisations to put on an event to commemorate HMD.

Extensive education resources and specially tailored guides for different settings can be accessed through the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website. A specific national resource for Wales, which includes local stories to help groups engage with HMD, is available here.

The HMD Trust are also running a series of workshops for those planning HMD events across the UK throughout the autumn. The closest for any Cardiff Central constituents considering running an event is taking place in Swansea on 19 October. For details and online booking please click here.
