Holocaust Memorial Day is the international day of remembrance of six million Jewish men, women and children murdered in the Holocaust, and millions of other people killed under German Nazi persecution, and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.

On Holocaust Memorial Day we commemorate the millions who were murdered in the Holocaust, by German Nazi persecution and in subsequent genocides, in order to challenge hatred and persecution in the UK today. The theme for this year’s event is ‘One Day’.

The Lord Mayor will open this year’s civic remembrance event, which will include a keynote speech by Dr Stefan Hördler, Lecturer at the Institute for Economic and Social History, University of Göttingen, and Visiting Professor within the School of Arts & Humanities at the University of Huddersfield.

Leeds Heritage Theatres’ Leeds Actors in Training (LAIT) have created a performance for the event inspired by Emmanuel Ringleblum and the Oneg Shabbat Archive. The piece is dedicated to his legacy. There will also be music by the UHC choir and a tribute to the late Rudi Leavor BEM who was part of this event for many years.

The event will conclude with a reading of the seven statements of commitments with candles lit by representatives of the different groups persecuted, including Holocaust survivors, people with additional needs, the LGBT+ community and Remembering Srebrenica.

This event will also be available to watch online from 2pm on Sunday 23 January 2022 on this webpage for those who wish to watch from their homes to remember those who lost their lives. There will be British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters at the event.
