Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 – One Day

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) takes place on 27 January each year, and activities are being planned to mark this anniversary.

Tower Hamlets residents are invited to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, under Nazi Persecution and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. 

Residents are also invited to reflect on ‘One Day’, the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022. ‘One Day’ can be interpreted in a number of ways. It could mark One Day in history, One Day when life changed, One Day at a time or One Day in the future. One Day could also be the difference that a day makes. One Day is just a brief moment in time, and can only provide a snapshot, but it can help bring a piece of the full picture to life.

On Holocaust Memorial Day 2022, this is One Day when we will come together in our communities, to learn from the past, empathise with others and help to build a better future.

Reflections on Holocaust Memorial Day from the Tower Hamlets Interfaith Forum

As we are unable to hold a physical event at the East London Central Synagogue, we have asked representatives from the Tower Hamlets Interfaith Forum to share their reflections on the theme of One Day, the Holocaust and subsequent genocides and Holocaust Memorial Day.

These written reflections will be available to view and download here on 27 January 2022.

For now, you can view the recorded reflections in the video on this page.

Read more and discover a range of educational resources and other information about opportunities to participate in 2022.
