The National Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration takes place in Dublin every year on the Sunday nearest to the 27 of January, in the Mansion House. It is organised under the auspices of Holocaust Education Trust Ireland in association with The Department of Justice and Equality and Dublin City Council.

Date: 26 January 2020

Time: 6 – 8 pm

Venue: The Round Room at the Mansion House, Dawson Street, Dublin 2

The Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration cherishes the memory of all who perished in the Holocaust.  It recalls six million Jewish men, women and children and millions of others who were persecuted and murdered by the Nazis because of their ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, political affiliations or their religious beliefs.  The ceremony includes readings, survivors’ recollections, candle-lighting and music.  It is attended by people from all walks of life and is a moving and dignified event.

To attend: There is no charge for attending HMD but it is necessary to apply for invitations.

To apply: Contact the HETI office at info@hetireland.org giving the names and addresses of all persons requesting invitations. They will be registered on the guest list and invitations will be sent out in early January.

We look forward to welcoming you!
