Welcome to the Yom HaShoah UK website

This year Yom HaShoah falls on 27 Nisan, Thursday 16th April 2015. Introduced in 1953, it is one of only four official days to have been added to the Jewish calendar in more than 2000 years. It is that important.

Yom HaShoah is the Jewish Community's day for internal reflection. It is our opportunity to educate our own children; to unite in passing on the torch of remembrance; to honour the victims of the Shoah; and to recognise the achievements of its survivors and refugees who have given so much to our society.

Please give just one day to "remember the past, honour the memory and shape the future!"

For information of all Yom HaShoah commemorations & events taking place near you including the National Commemoration Ceremony at Barnet Copthall Stadium on Sunday 19 April at 2pm (tickets & parking is complimentary but registration is essential) please see our Events page, or go directly to the National Event registration

No matter how big or how small, everyone in the community can play their part in commemorating Yom HaShoah. What matters is that we all remember.
