Teaching resources for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022

Jan 06, 2022


27th January marks Holocaust Memorial Day.

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 is One Day.

‘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 take action for a better future.’




We have compiled a number of sources of valuable resources available that may prove useful to teachers from many different faculties.
