27 January is Holocaust Memorial Day, a day to everyone to remember the six million Jews murdered in the Holocaust, and the millions of people killed by Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.
Poetry NI and sister project Lagan Online have marked past Holocaust Memorial Days with the release of online chapbooks from writers within Ireland and beyond, reflecting on issues that remain as poignant and as relevant today as ever. All are downloadable for free, just link on the images below:
