Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) has taken place in the UK on 27 January since 2001.

Each year, the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust chooses a different theme to enable audiences on Holocaust Memorial Day to learn something new about the past. Every theme is relevant to the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and to each subsequent genocide.

This year “Ordinary People” is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2023.

According to the Holocaust Memorial Day website, this theme highlights the ordinary people “who let genocide happen, the ordinary people who actively perpetrated genocide, and the ordinary people who were persecuted”:

Our theme will also prompt us to consider how ordinary people, such as ourselves, can perhaps play a bigger part than we might imagine in challenging prejudice today.
