Holocaust Memorial Day - light a candle at 8pm tomorrow if you can.

Tomorrow will be the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp and it will be marked in Britain and around the world as Holocaust Memorial Day, when we will remember the victims of genocide.

The UK Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 will be streamed online on Thursday 27 January at 7pm. Register below to watch the Ceremony online.


The Ceremony will run from 7–8pm.

At 8pm, get ready to Light the Darkness with us. Households across the UK will be lighting candles and safely putting them in their windows to:

  • remember those who were murdered for who they were
  • stand against prejudice and hatred today

Light a candle and put it in your window at 8pm on 27 January 2022 (if you are able to do so safely).
