Don't Stand By on Holocaust Memorial Day

15 January 2016

Holocaust Memorial Day is on Wednesday 27 January and PCS encourages all members to get involved.

As part of our anti fascist and anti racist campaigning, each year PCS works with the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) to enable members to arrange events on the dedicated day of commemoration, 27 January.

The theme for 2016 is ‘Don't stand by’ and calls on us all to consider our responsibility to not stand by in the face of discrimination and persecution.

Activity Pack
The HMDT has produced a free activity pack which you can order or download. The pack includes materials for displays, ideas for activities on the day and posters.

There is also a Get Involved Guide for trade unions,  which highlights simple ways that trade unions can engage in Holocaust Memorial Day.

Share your activities
Another way to raise awareness is by sharing HMD resources and activities with as many people as possible. The hashtag for use on social media platforms is #HMD2016.
