Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the millions of people who died during the Holocaust, under Nazi persecution, and in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
It is held every year on 27 January, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

We commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day every year with a civic ceremony on the Sunday closest to 27 January.
In June 2022 we held a free community fundraising event to mark Refugee Week and Holocaust Memorial Day.
The event was a Voices of Hope and Healing poetry and song concert by Michael Rosen.
