Thursday 27th January Holocaust Memorial Day. Today we remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution & genocides around the world.
We must never, ever forget the horrors of the Holocaust. Our determination to end hatred, discrimination & racism must remain resolute, to ensure we never see anything like this ever again.
Holocaust Memorial Day takes place each year on 27th January and there are many different and meaningful ways you can get involved and play your part to mark HMD. From schools and libraries to workplaces and prisons, HMD activities take place in thousands of diverse settings. Many households across the UK will be lighting candles and safely placing them in their windows tonight.
For more information about how to get involved, visit the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website here.
As the Holocaust Educational Trust say, survivor testimony is at the heart of Holocaust education. With Holocaust survivors now in their 80s, 90s and 100s, should you want to pay tribute to these brave individuals you can read more about them here.
Later today, I’ll be (virtually) attending the Wales National Ceremony to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day hosted by Mark Drakeford and conducted by The Reverend Canon Stewart Lisk, Honorary Chaplain to Cardiff Council. You’ll also be able to watch this from home via the link below.
