One Day this Holocaust Memorial Day

This year the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day is One Day. Today, 27th January, is Holocaust Memorial Day, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945. 

We remember the millions who perished at the hand of the Nazis and in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide.

Marking Holocaust Memorial Day is an important and meaningful act of public history. Commemorating those who lost their lives to this oppression and brutality is equally important as ensuring their vibrant memory prevents such acts ever being committed again.

The theme One Day can be interpreted in several ways:

  • One Day in History,
  • One Day when lives were changed,
  • One Day at a time
  • One Day in the future.

One Day is only a snapshot, but it is still significant as it helps us to stop and think, reflect, and remember.

The Holocaust Memorial Trust have many resources and meaningful activities to commemorate this poignant day, including an online commemoration; exhibitions, lighting of candles in your window at 8pm to remember those who were murdered for who they were and to stand against prejudice and hatred today.

Check out their website for more details and lots of other events and how you can get involved: www.hmd.org.uk.
