The 27th January marks Holocaust Memorial Day 2017, 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 2017 is How can life go on?
This year, HMDT have a new microsite called Reflections on loss and living, which explores living with absence after the Holocaust and genocide, and the roots of life. They are inviting people to take part in their nationwide arts programme and submit their own artistic responses to our Wall of Life.
You will also be able to pick up Holocaust Memorial Day booklets produced by the HMD Trust at Winchester, Basingstoke and Gosport Discovery Centres as well as Andover, Chandler’s Ford, Fareham, Farnborough, Lymington, Petersfield, Waterlooville and Fleet Libraries.
