International Holocaust Remembrance Day


You are cordially invited to join us for the first Australia-wide commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the liberation of Auschwitz on 27 January at 7pm.  

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.
