A Letter Of Thanks

HMD Letter

We are delighted to have received this letter from the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust praising Nottingham Liberal Synagogue for our efforts organising Holocaust Memorial Day events.

Dear Nottingham Liberal Synagogue

I'm writing to thank you for the work you did to organise a commemorative activity for this year's Holocaust Memorial Day. I'm delighted to confirm that your activity was one of 3,614 commemorative activities which took place across the UK for HMD 2015. This was 1,200 more than in 2014.

It's thanks to the work of HMD activity organisers like you that HMD is going from strength to strength, and is becoming established as a national day of commemoration, rooted in local communities.

There has been a significant increase in the public's knowledge of HMD - 84 per cent of British adults are now aware of the day (up from 77 per cent in 2014), and 31 per cent report that they know HMD well (up from 21 per cent in 2014). You can read more about the success of HMD 2015 in our 2015 and beyond booklet.

I would like to thank you for your continuing support for HMD, and look forward to working with you in the future as the day continues to ensure the UK has a national focus for commemoration of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides. Please don't hesitate to call on us for advice or assistance to help you continue to organise HMD activities in the coming years.

If you haven't done so already, please sign up to receive our occasional email newsletters, follow us on Twitter, and like us on Facebook to ensure you are kept up to date with news about HMD.

Yours sincerely
Olivia Marks-Woldman
Chief Executive
