Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2020 marks 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Don't be content in your life just to do no wrong, be prepared every day to try and do some good.
- Sir Nicholas Winton, who rescued 669 children from Nazi-occupied Europe
HMD 2020 also marks the 25th anniversary of the Genocide in Bosnia - read more about this here.
Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) encourages remembrance in a world scarred by genocide. We promote and support Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) – the international day on 27 January to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

27 January marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
The Holocaust threatened the fabric of civilisation, and genocide must still be resisted every day. Our world often feels fragile and vulnerable and we cannot be complacent. Even in the UK, prejudice and the language of hatred must be challenged by us all.
HMD is for everyone. Each year across the UK, thousands of people come together to learn more about the past and take action to create a safer future. We know they learn more, empathise more and do more.
Together we bear witness for those who endured genocide, and honour the survivors and all those whose lives were changed beyond recognition.

Councillor Maggie Wright, Deputy Leader and Finance & Assets Portfolio Holder, said: "This is an unprecedented number of vacancies for the Council to advertise at once which, once filled, will enable us to continue the great work we already do across the district. This is a great opportunity to bolster our vital services and help launch exciting new projects that will benefit local communities.

The Blaby, Hinckley & Bosworth Community Safety Partnership is a range of agencies who work together to make Blaby, Hinckley and Bosworth a safer place to live, work and visit. The Community Safety Partnership is consulting with residents via a questionnaire to find out what residents think are the most important crimes and antisocial behaviour for them to tackle.
Resident's views, alongside actual crime and disorder data, will help to determine priorities for the partnership for the next year. The results of this survey will also be used to inform the Crime and Community Safety Priorities for the area for the next three years, 2020-2023. More »
Councillor Les Phillimore, Joint Chair of the Blaby and Hinckley and Bosworth Community Safety Partnership said "To ensure that we are addressing the issues of most concern in our area, we are keen to hear from our residents and businesses about what matters to them. The more we know, the better we can allocate and target our plans and resources so I would encourage everyone to complete the survey"
Residents can get involved by completing the survey on line at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CSPstrategyconsultation201920 ; or by requesting a paper copy.
