Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2020 marked the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. In commemoration of this landmark anniversary, we ran an exciting project that organisations and community groups all over the UK took part in.
From art groups to faith groups and charities to schools, groups of all kinds came together to make their own Memorial Flames. Each one commemorates 75 years since the end of the Holocaust, the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis against the Jews in Europe.
In November a panel of experts reviewed the artworks submitted, and 75 Memorial Flame artworks were selected to form a national exhibition which launched at the UK Commemorative Ceremony for HMD 2020. The exhibition is touring different locations throughout the UK during 2020. Sign up to our newsletter to find out where and when the exhibition will be on display.
Artworks that are not included in the national exhibition were displayed at local HMD commemorations around the UK.
You can see all 75 Memorial Flames that feature in the national exhibition, and more from participating groups, by exploring our 75 Memorial Flames map.
If your group created a Memorial Flame as part of the 75 Memorial Flames project, or as an HMD activity, you can submit it to be displayed on our online map and gallery.
