Holocaust Memorial Day is a time for everyone to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust and in subsequent genocides throughout the world.

A chance to remember

Chairman Jeane Lea said: “Today we join with people and organisations across the world to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.”

“72 years ago today Auschwitz was liberated. Holocaust Memorial Day provides us with a chance to remember those murdered in genocides throughout the world. We must learn lessons from the past to ensure that these horrific events don’t happen again.”
