Holocaust Memorial Day – Jan 27th

The-power-of-words

Holocaust Memorial Day

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January 2018 is ‘The Power of Words’ and focuses on words written during the Holocaust and subsequent genocides by:

• Perpetrators
• People who wanted to criticise perpetrator regimes, or stand up against them
• People who wrote to survive, or to record their experiences for the future

And:

• Words written as a response to the Holocaust, Nazi persecution and subsequent genocides
• Words today
• How we respond to words
• The power of definitions
• Free speech and censorship

We will be supporting the campaign by promoting the day in Corsham library and participating in the social media campaign.
