The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity that promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day. HMD has taken place in the UK since 2001, with a UK event and over 5,000 local activities taking place on or around 27 January each year.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has funded HMDT’s work since 2007.
HMDT has overseen massive growth of HMD activities – over 5,000 activities took place across the UK for HMD 2016. We have worked in partnership with many organisations to ensure the life stories of survivors are shared with hundreds of thousands of people.
