Join us as we mark Holocaust Memorial Day. This year's theme is ‘The Fragilities of Freedom.'
This year JW3 will partner with the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Ambassador programme, empowering young people to facilitate, direct and organise an event. It is an opportunity to highlight the involvement of the next generations in ensuring the Holocaust will continue to be remembered for many years to come.
We're honoured to welcome guest speaker and Holocaust survivor Joan Salter, along with Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust Karen Pollock CBE and Holocaust educator Hephzibah Rudofsky.
The morning will feature music from chazan (cantor) Jonny Turgel and pianist Josh Nesbitt and include filmed and live survivor testimony.
About Holocaust Memorial Day
Holocaust Memorial Day is marked annually on 27 January, the date when Auschwitz was liberated.
It is an international day of remembrance, and has been held every year in the UK since 2001. It is a day of reflection for everyone, and an opportunity for communities to come together. It is also a reminder that genocides have occurred since 1945, and that there are communities around the world where democracy is threatened, and hatred and prejudice are encouraged.
JW3 organises an annual remembrance event for the community where we can reflect in a safe space and where conversations can start and continue.
