Holocaust Memorial Day

Prayers will be said at services throughout the day to mark Holocaust Memorial Day and to remember the six million Jews who died and the millions who have died in genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.

The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity which promotes and supports HMD across the UK. Each year the trust encourage events and activities to ensure that the day itself is an opportunity for everyone to learn lessons from the past to create a safer, better future.
