Join us at the online launch of our resources for Holocaust Memorial Day 2021
We are excited to share our new resources to support communities to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD), even while socially distant.
Join us online on 15 September from 4:00-5:30pm as we share exciting ways for individuals and organisations to get involved, with Olivia Marks-Woldman, Chief Executive of Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT), exploring the importance of marking the day. Local HMD activity organisers from all over the country will hear from Martin Stern MBE, survivor of the Holocaust, who will discuss the theme for HMD 2021, Be the light in the darkness.
The HMDT Outreach team will showcase brand new resources which will enable groups of all kinds to mark HMD 2021, with a chance for you to ask questions. With the world facing a global pandemic, joining together in person isn't always possible, but our resources will give you ways to join together with others, to learn from genocide — for a better future.
For more information about the event and to sign up, please visit the Eventbrite page. Please note that there is a limited number of places left, so please book early to avoid disappointment, and cancel your ticket if you are later unable to attend.
We look forward to sharing our new resources with you. If you can't make the event but still want to find out more about marking HMD 2021, please feel free to get in touch.
