International Holocaust Remembrance Day Online Event – Wednesday January 27, 2021, 6:30PM

Holocaust Museums across Australia are uniting to present a moving and memorable commemoration. This online event will illuminate ways that we can all be a light for humanity in the darkness, through the inspiring words of Holocaust survivors and leaders in society.

Holocaust survivors from across Australia will participate in a moving candle lighting ceremony to ensure that the memory of the 6 million murdered in the Holocaust, is never forgotten.

Join us to heed the action to shine our own ‘light’ on intolerance and injustices that continue to prevail.
