Experts' Reference Group

The Experts' Reference Group provides HMDT with expert advice on historical and contemporary questions related to the Holocaust, subsequent genocides, the nature of genocide, historical memory and commemoration.

Faith Advisory Group

The Faith Advisory Group is made up of representatives from the UK faith and religious groups. They advise HMDT on engaging diverse faith and religious communities and supporting them to mark HMD.

Genocide Survivors’ Consultative Group

The Genocide Survivors’ Consultative Group, established in 2018, brings together survivors of genocides which have taken place since the Holocaust. Its purpose is to ensure that HMDT is working effectively to represent and share the experiences of those affected by genocide.

Legacy Consultative Group

The Legacy Consultative Group, established in 2015, supports our work in ensuring that the Holocaust is at the centre of Holocaust Memorial Day. Survivors of the Holocaust, members of the second and third generations, and HMDT Trustees make up the membership of this group.

Youth Consultative Group

The Youth Consultative Group is a group of representatives from a broad range of national youth organisations. They work collaboratively on special projects to encourage more young people to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) each year and to increase youth knowledge and education of the Holocaust and the genocides which have followed.
