Holocaust Memorial Flame Activity

Jun 27, 2019


Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) 2020 will mark the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. In commemoration of this landmark anniversary, Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is launching an exciting new project for organisations and community groups around the country to take part in. 

The theme for HMD 2020 is Stand Together.  Groups can participate in the project by creating artworks featuring a memorial flame, marking 75 years since the end of the Holocaust. 75 artworks will be chosen to be displayed at the UK Ceremony for HMD 2020. Any memorial flames which are not selected can be displayed at your local HMD 2020 event. 

 This opportunity is open to all and there is no upper or lower age limit. You can apply as a community group, a school or college, a gallery or museum, a workplace, library, hospital or prison. Whatever your setting, all you need is a group who would like to take part.

Please see download below for more information.

Groups must register for the event by Fri 19 July 2019 and submit information about the artwork by Friday 18 October 2019.
