Whether you are organising an activity to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) or just want to use your social media accounts to raise awareness of the day, there are lots of ways you can take part online.
Each year the messages of HMD reach millions of people online. By becoming part of the online conversation you can help to counter divisive content on social media and spread messages of tolerance and understanding.
Below are some of the ways you can mark HMD online.
Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on 27 January 2020. To honour this significant anniversary, join thousands of people in remembrance, through our online commemorative project, #StandTogether.
Through the project you can share information about someone who was murdered by the Nazis on your Facebook or Twitter account. Together, let’s honour the memory of those who were murdered and remember them as unique individuals.
