Each year on 8 March individuals, groups and communities across the world celebrate International Women’s Day.

Designated as an annual commemoration in 1975 by the United Nations, International Women’s Day sees thousands of events held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements.

International Women's Day provides an opportunity for us to highlight female Holocaust and genocide survivors who work tirelessly to raise awareness of their experiences.  Their testimonies provide a stark warning to us of what can happen when acts of discimination are left unchecked and inspire us all to work towards a future free from the dangers of hatred.
