Every year, a different theme is announced for Holocaust Memorial Day. This provides a focus for events and education in local and national commemorations. The resources that are produced by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust are based on the theme for that year.
 
Each year we produce ‘theme vision’ – explaining the thinking behind the theme and providing case studies of stories which fit well within it. You can download previous years’ theme vision here, along with links to previous years’ films.
