Holocaust Memorial Day is a day for education, commemoration and reflection. To think deeply  about what happened to countless individuals,  how small actions escalated to acts of organised hate crime and ultimately genocide. And what we need to do today both to keep the memory alive and build societies that resist this kind of discrimination and all forms of identity-based violence. Here in Bristol, we look at these issues throughout the year, not just in January.

Holocaust Memorial Day falls on January 27th every year, which is the date when the death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, was liberated in 1945. The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017 is ‘How can life go on’. In 2016, it was “Don’t Stand By.”

Please join fellow Bristol residents for the civic commemoration on Friday January 27th 2017 from 1.30 – 4.30 pm at the City Hall, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TR.

  • Hear speakers from diverse communities share reflections on the 2017 theme ‘How Can Life Go On?.’
  • Visit stallholders representing charities that work with refugees or people who’ve experienced racism and war.
  • Event is free and wheelchair, hearing loop and BSL accessible. Light refreshments during the break.
