Holocaust Memorial Day 2018
The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity that promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). 27 January is the day for everyone to remember the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, and the millions of people killed in Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.
27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, near Kracow in Poland which was the largest Nazi death camp during WW2.
You can find more information about the HMD Trust and its work by going on their website:
Let us pray for all who suffer from hatred and prejudice, from abuse and ill treatment, and for all who are victims of other people. Let us pray too, for the people of violence, that they may change their ways and learn to respect others. Let us pray for ourselves that when we face what is negative or evil, we may have the courage and generosity to break the cycle of violence, taking responsibility for the direction in which we want our lives to go. Let us pray that we may always do to others as we would wish them to do to us. Amen.
