Managing media relations for Holocaust Memorial Day 2016
For the third year running, we are working with the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, the organisation responsible for marking Holocaust Memorial Day in the UK.
The national commemoration is held each year on 27 January to remember the millions of people killed in the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
In 2015, Holocaust Memorial Day marked the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
The theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2016 is 'Don't stand by' and we are delighted to be working on it alongside our digital partners Nonsense.
