Holocaust Memorial Day

Holocaust Memorial Day takes place annually on the 27th January.


This year as the University of Lincoln commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, we take time to reflect on, not only the persecutions and genocide of the six million Jews under the Nazi’s, but also on the genocides that followed across the world. We will also reflect on all endangered peoples now, today, facing life-threatening state violence in our society.

The University of Lincoln does not tolerate antisemitism, racism, discrimination or hate. By recognising the past atrocities, genocides and ethnic cleansing of people and their cultures around the world, and acknowledging and fighting against the increasing climate of intolerance, prejudice and hate that have shocked the world in 2020, we hope to build a future where discrimination is actively rejected.

Our One Community Values and ethos are a framework to ensure that respectful and inclusive behaviours should be at the heart of all we do – for each other, our partners, and our customers (internally and externally) both in our thoughts and our actions.

– Equality
– Understanding
– Listening
– Kindness
– Acceptance

We hope you will join us and Be the light in the darkness as we come together as One Community to reflect and learn from the past to inspire a brighter future.
