This year's theme set by The Holocaust Memorial Day ( HMD) Trust is the 'Fragility of Freedom' 

It is our duty to remember and acknowledge past atrocities in order to be  aware of what hate speech and behaviour can lead towards.
The HMD Trust stresses the importance of remembrance, a crucial step in safeguarding against serious human rights violations being repeated.

It is a time to remember, reflect and  increase awareness and understanding of the impacts of genocide. 
Anyone who would like mark Holocaust Memorial Day is most welcome.

Art Central Gallery [ACG] in the Vale of Glamorgan, managed by Tracey Harding was the first gallery to address Holocaust issues outside the annual National day of remembrance.

 ACG has been praised highly across the UK and internationally for engaging the public, schools and colleges in addressing themes associated with themes relating to Genocide.
Last year’s Holocaust Day Memorial Exhibition (HMD) at Art Central Gallery in partnership with the Sophie Scholl Foundation and authour of 'Sophie Scholl and the White Rose' Jud Newborn, highlighted the struggle young students experienced whilst they stood up against controlling Nazi regimes. 

Art central gallery has hosted and curated Holocaust Memorial exhibitions for the past 16 years.

Freedom, a word we often take for granted in our daily lives. 

Genocide doesn't just happen it's a viscous growth of organised activities that contribute and lead towards  persecution hatred, torture the removal of human rights and freedom 

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Sometimes we must interfere. When human lives are endangered, when human dignity is in jeopardy, national borders and sensitivities become irrelevant. Wherever men or women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must—at that moment—become the center of the universe.”

Elie Wiesel- Nobel Laureate 

A remarkable man who sought to instill a universal human obligation to respond and fight any form of persecution.
