Holocaust Memorial Day 2023

Published: 4th January 2023

Holocaust Memorial Day, 27 January 2023 

Holocaust Memorial Day is an annual reminder to remain vigilant to the horrors that people can inflict on each other. However, it is also an opportunity to remind everyone of the detail of past events that can sometimes seem too big to comprehend. This year the theme is Ordinary People and it will help us to remember that the victims of genocide are ordinary people with ordinary lives, while those who commit genocide and initiate it are also ordinary people. Their ordinariness is one of the things that make those who carry out and enable genocide all the more chilling, and provides us all with a learning point that can help us take facts from the past to help us look carefully at the present.
