We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 27 January at 7.30pm AEDT for the Australia-wide online commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day (IHRD) and the liberation of Auschwitz.

The members of the Australian Holocaust Museum Alliance unite for this event to inspire Australians to keep the memories of survivors and those murdered in the Holocaust alive.

At a time when the number of living survivors continues to dwindle, IHRD illuminates the stories of survivors, alongside the voices of leaders within the wider community, to combat racism and discrimination and to ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust continue to be passed on to future generations.


About the event:

Listen to moving speeches by Holocaust survivors alongside other notable speakers listed below. Witness survivors participate in a moving candle lighting ceremony to ensure we never forget the memory of the 6 million Jewish people murdered in the Holocaust.

In addition to the ceremony, hear about the key findings and recommendations from a landmark piece of research, the Gandel Holocaust Knowledge and Awareness in Australia Survey, conducted by Deakin University and Gandel Foundation.

This event is proudly supported by Gandel Foundation and the Victorian Government Multicultural Festivals & Events Program.


The Australian Holocaust Museum Alliance (AHMA) has been founded by Canberra Holocaust Museum, Adelaide Holocaust Museum, Holocaust Institute of Western Australia, Melbourne Holocaust Museum (Melbourne), Queensland Holocaust Museum and Education Centre and Sydney Jewish Museum.
