Event details
About this event

You are cordially invited to join us for the first Australia-wide commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January at 7pm AEDT (NSW, VIC, TAS, & ACT).

Holocaust Museums across Australia are uniting to present a moving and memorable commemoration. This online event will illuminate ways that we can all be a light for humanity in the darkness, through the inspiring words of Holocaust survivors and leaders in society.

Notable speakers include: Prime Minister the Hon. Scott Morrison MP; The Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP; Senator The Hon. Penny Wong; The Hon. Justice Michael Kirby AC CMG; Holocaust Survivor Olga Horak OAM; John Gandel AC, Chairman of Gandel Philanthropy; Gideon Reisner, CEO of Stand Up.

Holocaust survivors from across Australia will participate in a moving candle lighting ceremony to ensure that the memory of the 6 million murdered in the Holocaust, is never forgotten.

Join us to heed the action to shine our own ‘light’ on intolerance and injustices that continue to prevail.
