The content of your activity is crucial as it is what your audience will remember. By creating a successful programme, your audience will understand why Holocaust Memorial Day is important to them.
Your programme could include: the images
on display during the activity, the speakers
you use, and even the handout materials
given away. There is no single way to carry out a HMD activity – it is for you to judge what will suit your audience.
You’ll find many different resources in this section for you to use to create the content for your event. Our logos and posters
can be used to help you publicise your activity
, you could play a podcast
as part of your HMD activity or use a life story of a survivor of genocide as an inspiration for your activity.
You may find that your audience appreciate handout material to take away – there’s a copy of this ‘About HMD Booklet
’ in our Activity Pack
and you can order extras for free in quantities of 50 by contacting the HMDT team on 020 7785 7029
. We also provide presentations
and suggested films
which you may find appropriate for your activity.
