Holocaust Memorial Day
The theme for HMD 2020 is Stand Together. It explores how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalising certain groups, and how these tactics can be challenged by individuals standing together with their neighbours, and speaking out against oppression.

Holocaust Memorial Day was created on 27 January 2000, when representatives from 46 governments around the world met in Stockholm to discuss Holocaust education, remembrance and research and all signed a declaration committing to preserve the memory of those who have been murdered in the Holocaust. This declaration became the statement of commitment which is still used as a basis for Holocaust Memorial Day activities today.

Anne Frank
Anne Frank: Parallel Stories – Everyman Belsize Park
Anne Frank Parallel Stories is a powerful retelling of Anne Frank's life through the pages of her extraordinary diary guided by the Academy-Award winning actress Helen Mirren, and through the lives of five women who, as young girls, were also deported to concentration camps but survived the Holocaust.

As a dedication to what would have been her 90th anniversary --and in cooperation with the Anne Frank Foundation -- the documentary takes audiences into Anne's room within the secret annex of her family's hiding place before being deported, and through read excerpts of her diary intertwined with the experiences of the survivors who lived to tell their own parallel stories.
