Holocaust Memorial Day - January - University of Derby

Holocaust Memorial Day

The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day which is marked on 27 January 2017 is ‘How can life go on?’

The aftermath of the Holocaust and of subsequent genocides continues to raise challenging questions for individuals, communities and nations. HMD 2017 asks audiences to think about what happens after genocide and of our own responsibilities in the wake of such a crime. This year’s theme is broad and open ended, there are few known answers.

Visit the Holocaust Memorial Day website to check out the wider scope of this year’s theme.

Book a place to hear Bernard Grunberg, a Holocaust survivor, who will be telling his story at the Kedleston Road site on Thursday 19 January. 

If you would like to find out more in general about the Holocaust we have a number of books in the library (this list has been updated in January 2017 to reflect this year’s theme but you can find more relevant titles in the Library Catalogue).  You could also try searching in LibraryPlus or Discover using keywords, “life” AND “extreme trauma” for example.
