Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 Commemoration Event

Calderdale Interfaith would like to invite you to their Holocaust Memorial Day online event on Tuesday the 25th of January.

The event is hosted by Calderdale Interfaith, the Holocaust Survivors Friendship Association, and Calderdale College.

Holocaust Memorial Day is One Day – 27 January – that we put aside 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 act for a better future.
