Holocaust Memorial Day commemorates the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and Nazi persecutions as well as other worldwide genocides. Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. The day also provides many a significant opportunity to learn lessons and apply them to the present day. 

In the weeks leading up to and after Holocaust Memorial Day, thousands of commemorative events are arranged by faith groups and the community and voluntary sector across the country, remembering all the victims of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. 

I encourage everyone to mark the day and to join in the fight against prejudice and intolerance.
