People across the UK will remember the 6 million lives lost during the Holocaust, by lighting a candle on January 27.

January 27 is Holocaust Memorial Day. It is day to remember those who lost their lives to genocide during the Holocaust.

People across the UK will light a candle at 8pm, coming together to remember and stand against the hate and prejudice connected with the mass genocide of WW2.

The theme of this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day is, ‘One Day’, encouraging people to learn more on one specific day throughout the tragedy of the World War two Nazi persecution. 

Encompassing stories from those who survived the Holocaust and the ‘one day’ that life changed for them, this year’s HMD holds power. 

 

 

Each Year, Holocaust Memorial Day has a theme and this year’s theme of ‘One Day’ has more than one meaning. 

One Day for HMD, where collectively people come together. 

One Day in history, encouraging people to learn more about a specific date.

One Day where life changed for those who survived the Holocaust and how they reflect upon that time.

One Day at a time, to remember and empathise with the depression and abuse.

One Day in the future, for the groups of people in Concentration Camps who desperately held on for their day of liberation. 

But also to hope that one day, there will be a world without genocide, prejudice and unjustice.

And finally, One Day is just a snapshot representing the Holocaust. The individual experiences of those who endured the Nazi persecution will never be fully understood, but with HMD, we can create a picture of knowledge, empathy and history.

 

The Holocaust, which happened during World War Two, saw the lives of more than 6 million Jewish men, woman and children killed; Across camps in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

However, the impact is still huge hundreds of years later. For example, the Rwanda Genocide lasted over 100 days, seeing decades of tension and division between communities and ethnicities. 

And for those who survived the Holocaust, the wounds of trauma will never fully fade; Survivers still take it one day at a time.
