Lambeth’s 2022 Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration on Sunday, 23 January will remember, honour and share stories from those persecuted in the Holocaust and subsequent genocides.

Commemoration
Many governments have legislated for January 27 as an annual Holocaust Memorial Day – an international day of commemoration to honour the victims of the Holocaust. The UN Resolution establishing International Holocaust Remembrance Day urges every member nation to honour the memory of victims, and encourages the development of educational programs about history to help prevent future acts of genocide – learning from the past for a better future. 

‘One Day’

The theme for 2022 set by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust is “One Day’. There are many ways to read this.
The world together puts aside one day to remember victims, in the hope that one day there will be no genocide.
