Holocaust Memorial Day is remembered each year on 27 January, which was the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945.

A city-wide programme of events took place to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day in 2019. The programme was inspired by the national theme, "Torn from Home", and reflected on individuals, families and communities driven out of their homes because of persecution or the threat of genocide. It also looked at the continuing difficulties survivors face as they try to find and build new homes after genocide.
