Holocaust Memorial Day 2017
Wed 1 February 2017, 17:00 – 20:00 GMT
Leeds Beckett Centre for Culture and the Arts is pleased to offer the following event to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2017.
Holocaust Memorial Day (27th January) has officially been recognised in the UK since 2001, as a day to commemorate the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur, and to challenge ourselves to use the lessons of their experience to inform our lives today.
The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. Thus, the general theme for HMD 2017 asks “How Can Life Go On?”.
