. . and to use your voices to Speak Up against hatred and discrimination.” Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
Holocaust Memorial Day falls on 27th January each year – which is this Friday. Use the memory of those whose voices were silenced (victims of the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides) to Speak Out today. HMD Trust has loads of info, stories, video clips & inspirational ideas for us all to use.
