“Holocaust Memorial Day is a time for bringing communities together in collective remembrance of the millions of people persecuted and killed for who they were, and in so doing, to learn the lessons of the past and stand up to hatred, bigotry and racism wherever we find it today. At a time of heightened tensions and communal division in the UK as a result of the conflict in Israel and Gaza, bringing communities together in recognition of our common humanity is more important than ever.” Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, January 2024
