Liverpool has the honour of hosting 2008’s Holocaust Memorial Day and the associated programme of events.

Holocaust Memorial Day itself is 27th January. This is the international day of remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust and other genocides.

On it, we commemorate victims, honour survivors and commit to tackling prejudice, discrimination and racism in the present day. In hundreds of places across the UK, and in thousands around the world, people come together to honour the past and build a safer, fairer world.

The Main Commemorative Event will take place on 27 January 2008 at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.

A programme of educational activities has been taking place across the city, with over two weeks of events taking place from 14 January until 31 January.
