Our free, downloadable resources contain everything you need to get involved with Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD), even if you are new to teaching this subject. Our HMD education guidelines for teachers provide a starting point for planning your HMD activities.

Marking HMD in schools has a huge impact on young people, as demonstrated in our local activity case studies, and impact films.

Our resources aim to help students to:

  • Learn more
  • Feel empathy
  • Be inspired to take action

You can find advice and resources suitable for your students below, or click here to explore all of our education resources. Physical resources are also available to order for, such as About HMD booklets and pin badges.
