Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD)

 

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) is the international day on 27 January to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, the millions of people killed under Nazi Persecution and in recent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

27 January marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp and 2022 is the 77th Anniversary of this historic event. It is an occasion for communities to come together to learn, remember and reflect. Each year across the UK, thousands of people mark HMD and learn more about the past in order to take action to build stronger communities and create a safer future, free of genocide and all other forms of identity-based hostility.
