Your college or university and Holocaust Memorial Day

On Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD), universities and colleges play a vital role in learning from genocide – for a better future. HMD can be an opportunity to learn from the Holocaust and genocides that followed to address issues of prejudice and discrimination in the UK today. This Get involved guide gives you examples and practical suggestions for what you can do in your college or university to mark HMD.
