Holocaust Memorial Day Logo

Birmingham will be commemorating National Holocaust Memorial Day on 24th January and this year the theme is DON'T STAND BY.

Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi persecutions as well as other worldwide genocides and as such provides a significant opportunity to learn lessons and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future.

The ceremony will be held in Birmingham’s Council House, and is free. Doors open at 1.30pm, when members of the public will be invited to light a candle of remembrance.
