Holocaust education on campus can take multiple forms to suit your campus. Traditionally, Holocaust commemoration falls around Holocaust Memorial Day and Yom HaShoah but you are not restricted to these days and Holocaust education can happen all year round. There are a multitude of ways that you can commemorate on campus at any date or time - whatever is most convenient for students. Don’t worry if you’ve never organised an event before, we’re here to help you along the way by providing ideas and resources to use.
Here is all the activity and different organisations you can engage with and how you can commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day 2022.
Exhibition on your campus
If you would like to organise holding an exhibition on your campus to mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2022, please click here. This is a great way to engage the wider student body in HMD.

Holocaust Memorial Day Trust
On 27th 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.

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.
