Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration and Srebrenica Memorial Day

27 January is the annual commemoration day for the Holocaust and the genocides that followed it: Cambodia (1975 to 1979), Bosnia (1992 to 1995), Rwanda (1994) and Darfur (2003 to the present).

The Scottish national Holocaust commemoration event is hosted by a different local authority each year.

Interfaith Scotland chairs the steering group for the event. This includes representatives from the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, the Scottish Government, the host council and Police Scotland.

We also recognise the Srebrenica genocide as part of Holocaust Memorial Day. We continue to support Remembering Srebrenica to recognise the commemoration date (11 July) and to deliver their ‘Lessons from Srebrenica’ project.
