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. This year’s theme encourages people to honour those communities which were destroyed in the Holocaust under Nazi persecutions and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
