Light the Darkness: this Friday is Holocaust Memorial Day

Each year people from across the UK take part in a national moment for Holocaust Memorial Day.

At 4pm on 27 January 2023, the 78th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, people across the nation will light candles and put them safely in their windows to:

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

Iconic buildings and landmarks will light up in purple during this powerful national moment of commemoration and solidarity.

There will also be a national online commemoration ceremony at 7pm on Thursday 26th January for which you can register here.
