Holocaust Memorial Day – read and remember

The diary of a young girl, by Anne FrankHolocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January each year, marking the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau (the largest Nazi death camp) on 27 January 1945.

The purpose of the day is to reflect on and remember those victims or survivors of the Holocaust or subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. We have compiled a list of books which may help in this remembrance, and inform us through both fiction and non-fiction.

Books for Holocaust Memorial Day

To find out more take a look at the HMD Trust’s website, which includes a huge number of resources, with information on both the Nazi Holocaust and genocides elsewhere and more recent. 

There have been events and exhibitions across the Westminster, Kensington & Chelsea and Hammersmith & Fulham library services, and professional storyteller Vanessa Woolf will visit Fulham Library tomorrow afternoon, 28 January, for children aged 7-11.
