Holocaust Memorial Day

27 January is Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). On HMD we remember the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution, and during the subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime. This year’s theme is broad and open ended, there are few known answers.
 
Author and survivor of the Holocaust Elie Wiesel has said:
 
'For the survivor death is not the problem. Death was an everyday occurrence. We learned to live with Death. The problem is to adjust to life, to living. You must teach us about living.'
