ACTS OF
REMEMBRANCE

STAND WITH US...

Millions of people were stripped of their humanity and murdered during the Holocaust and Nazi Persecution. Each person was unique, with their own interests, friends and family and must be remembered.

For HMD 2020 we asked people to #StandTogether with thousands of others in remembrance and share information about one of these individuals on their Facebook or Twitter account.

As many of the murdered were never identified, those whose names are unknown were also remembered as part of this project.

Find out more about the people that were remembered here.

    For many of the people named in our project we do not have detailed information about their lives. In many cases the Nazis deliberately destroyed records and stripped people of their identity. Read and share these three life stories of individuals we know more about.
