Ambassadors, join us in marking Holocaust Memorial Day 2024

What is Holocaust Memorial Day?

Holocaust Memorial Day takes place every year on 27th January and marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

On and around this day, Ambassadors from right across the UK will be working hard on initiatives running virtually and in person, with their schools, universities and workplaces, to remember the six million Jewish men, women and children murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. There are already hundreds of Ambassadors planning events across the UK, and the Holocaust Educational Trust is here to support you to do something in your own community.

What is the theme?

The theme for this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day is 'Fragility of Freedom'. Guidance on this theme can be found here!
