The Holocaust Educational Trust has produced guidelines for teachers to use in planning Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) commemorative ceremonies in their schools. HMD takes place each year on 27th January, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The national theme in the UK for HMD 2012 is "Speak Up, Speak Out".
HMD is marked in thousands of schools every year with special assemblies and lessons. To download educational guidelines produced by the Holocaust Educational Trust as well as suggested readings for use in HMD ceremonies, please click on the links below.
