Holocaust Memorial Day is the international day of remembrance for the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust and the millions of other people killed under Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
The theme for this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day on Thursday 27 January is ‘One Day’.
Brighton & Hove City Council is supporting the Brighton & Hove Holocaust Education Project in commemorating this year’s event.
For the second year this event will be entirely online, joining communities around the UK as they observe the national day of awareness and reflection.
A special one-hour programme will be live-streamed courtesy of Latest TV 6pm on 27 January on the station’s website.
You can also watch the national Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony tonight at 7pm streamed live on the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust website.
At 8pm, the Holocaust Memoral Day Trust are asking us all to join in bringing a ‘light to the darkness’ by lighting a candle and putting it in your window in order to remember those who were murdered for who they were, and to stand against prejudice and hatred today.
