Keeping the Memory Alive in Hampshire Libraries

The 27th January marks Holocaust Memorial Day 2016, promoted and supported by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. It’s a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

The theme for 2016 is Don’t Stand By;

“We need to take into account the lives of other people who live around us. We need to look after each other.” Kemal Pervanić

To mark this important and poignant day, Hampshire Libraries are going to be providing resources, displays and booklists for you to learn and remember.

In Hampshire Libraries you will also be able to pick up Holocaust Memorial Day booklets produced by the HMD Trust.

As well as our activities in libraries, we’ll be sharing, tweeting and posting on our social media accounts using the hashtag #HMD16, so follow us @hantslibraries for even more content.

It is important for us to hear your thoughts, stories and feedback, share your comments with us below or find us on Twitter @hantslibraries.
