Holocaust Memorial Day 2022

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 is One Day.

One Day – 27 January – is a day that we put aside every year to come together to remember, to learn about the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, in the hope that there may be One Day in the future with no genocide. We learn more about the past, we empathise with others today, and we take action for a better future.

‘You didn’t think about yesterday, and tomorrow may not happen, it was only today that you had to cope with and you got through it as best you could.” - Iby Knill, survivor of the Holocaust.

The theme can be interpreted in many different ways:

  • One Day in history
  • One Day when life changed
  • One Day at a time
  • One Day in the future
  • One Day as a snapshot

Holocaust Memorial Day provides an important opportunity for all residents to remember those who suffered and died in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. Join us as we reflect upon these atrocities and join together in demonstrating our solidarity in combating antisemitism, racism and hatred.

This year, we were honoured to be welcoming speakers Hedi Argent MBE (Holocaust Educational Trust), Eric Murangwa Eugene MBE (Ishami Foundation) and Ella Gari-Ebner (Generation 2 Generation).

For anyone unable to attend the event in person this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
