The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity that promotes and supports Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD).

HMD has taken place in the UK since 2001, with a UK event and over 5,590 local activities taking place on or around 27 January each year.
The UK played a leading role in establishing HMD as an international day of commemoration in 2000, when 46 governments signed the Stockholm Declaration.
The UK Government had responsibility for running HMD from 2001-2005, organised through the Home Office.
In May 2005 HMDT was registered as a charity (charity no: 1109348) and the Home Secretary appointed HMDT Trustees for the first time. The professional team started work in October 2005.
The Department for Communities and Local Government has funded our work since 2007.
To date, we have overseen massive growth of HMD activities – over 5,590 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. 
In March 2016 we launched Don't stand by: 2016 and beyond, a booklet detailing the impact that Holocaust Memorial Day has on individuals and communities across the UK. The booklet highlights the diverse range of activities and locations in which HMD took place for 2016, as well as the fantastic media coverage and online engagement that helped raise awareness of the theme Don't stand by.
HMDT is governed by a Board of Trustees, which is made up of a diverse range of individuals and organisations. Our Trustees set the strategic vision and have responsibility for the governance of the charity. 
We are privileged that His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is Patron of HMDT.
