Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January each year. It’s a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On HMD we can honour the survivors of these regimes and challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.

For Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 Holocaust survivor Dr. Stern gave an incredible talk at Warwick titled 'The Power of Words', hosted by the Jewish-Israeli Society, Warwick History Society, Warwick SU, The NUS, Holocaust Educational Trust & The Voice Of Jewish Students.
