We work with student unions around the UK to support educational and commemorative events and to arrange for Holocaust survivors to speak to students. To enquire about organising a visit by a survivor to your university, please follow the instructions here.

We believe it is important that Holocaust Memorial Day be marked on campuses across the country and provide guidance and support to help facilitate this. Guidance and suggested readings based on the theme of Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 – One Day – can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
