Holocaust Memorial Day – online event
6.30pm Monday 24th January
Organised by: Stand Up To Racism
Information from the organisers
Stand up to Racism is holding an online event on Monday 24th January 2022, marking Holocaust Memorial Day.
The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust announced that the theme for 2022 is “One Day” – when we will all come together in our communities, to learn about the Holocaust and resolve to work for a better future.
“One Day” also means remembering defining moments in history – such as 18 April 1943, when the Jewish inhabitants of the Warsaw Ghetto fought back against the Nazi Regime.
This years HMD comes against the backdrop of the international rise of racism and antisemitism and the growth of the Far Right.
We are also seeing moves by governments, including the British government, to rip up the rights of refugees established in the wake of the Nazi Holocaust.
It is now more important than ever to reflect and bear witness the atrocities that resulted in the murder of over 6 Million Jewish people and millions of others, and to educate a new generation about the genocidal horror that fascism represents.
