Holocaust Memorial Day, The Museum

Every year at the end of January the world commemorates Holocaust Memorial Day. The day provides an opportunity for everyone to learn lessons from the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides and apply them to the present day to create a safer, better future.

On Holocaust Memorial Day let us share the memory of the millions who have been murdered in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the UK today. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is a charity which works to raise awareness of Holocaust Memorial Day. They promote and encourage participation in Holocaust Memorial Day by providing free resources, running free workshops across the UK and producing the annual theme for Holocaust Memorial Day. 

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2019 is ‘Torn from Home’.

The Wellingborough Museum is marking the day with illustrated talks at the Museum on 26 Jan at 11am in the Dulley Room. This talk is free but seating is limited, so please book your ticket by calling 01933 276838.
