UK 2021 HMD Ceremony

On 27 January from 7 – 8pm, HMDT are inviting all of you to gather (in spirit) to remember those who were murdered for who they were: in the Holocaust, during Nazi Persecution and in the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. 

Click Here to register for the event. 

Generation 2 Generation 

Generation 2 Generation (G2G) aims to ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust are learned: the need for tolerance, empathy and understanding of all groups in society; the fact that prejudice and discrimination can motivate genocide.

G2G provides speakers who retell their parents and grandparents’ stories and experiences before and during the Holocaust. Our speakers are able to present to a variety of age groups, online or face-to-face, integrating first-hand video and audio testimony, photos and other artefacts to engage the students. 

In the past 18 months our speakers have delivered more than 50 presentations to approximately 3600 audience members in schools, civic and religious institutions.

If you are interested in hosting a speaker please download the speaker request form and to find out more about their work, click here.
