In today's world of social media, people and particular children, get most of their information and news from the internet.  Obviously, some of this information cannot be trusted and includes fake stories and conspiracy theories about the holocaust, immigration and identity based hostility.   

Holocaust Memorial Day is held on the 27 January each year when a range of national events take place.  Holocaust Memorial Day - North Somerset was established in 2019 and during this time we have held an number of public events. Our work is being sponsored by councils and other organisations including and businesses in our area.

Our activities to date included, tree planting, school poetry and photography competitions and public meetings involving local community groups and guest speakers.

North Somerset like other parts of the country is facing a change in its composition  through migration, asylum seekers and refugees.  Often people are fleeing from wars like Ukraine, Syria and Afghanistan and oppression as is the case with Hong Kong.

Please see www.hmd-north-somerset.com for further details.

Funds are required to further our public events and work in schools and involve communities across the district.
