The national Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration takes place on the Sunday nearest to 27 January every year.

Mission Statement

The Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration is designed to cherish the memory of all of the victims of the Nazi Holocaust. A candle-lighting ceremony is an integral part of the commemoration at which six candles are always lit for the six million Jews who perished, as well as candles for all of the other victims. The commemoration serves as a constant reminder of the dangers of racism and provides lessons from the past that are relevant today.

The Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration demonstrates the Irish Government’s commitment to the Declaration of Stockholm, 2000, when the 44 signatory countries undertook to commemorate and teach about the Holocaust every year.

Holocaust Education Trust Ireland advises and assists Government with organising the annual Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration.

Dublin - 6 - 8 February 2013

An Intercultural Cities Milestone Event: Making Diversity Work for Cities


In 2008 the Council of Europe and the European Commission, together with a group of pioneer cities, took a challenge: to develop and test a culturally competent approach to integrating diverse communities. The Intercultural cities initiative was born.

Participants will learn about the tools which have been created to support cities in implementing the intercultural integration approach: a Step-By-Step guide enables a structured approach to policy audit, citizen involvement in strategy development and an Intercultural Cities Index helps cities make evidence-based judgments about the impact and outcomes of their policies and resource investment.

Thematic workshops will review the meaning and practice of interculturalism in various policy fields such as culture, education, housing and neighbourhood development, safety and policing.For more information, please contact:

FREESTATE is a film from Southern Africa aiming to capture the intense sensual experience of Zimbabwe and its impact on human behaviour. The film shows the mysterious balancing rocks of Domboshava, the devastating beauty of the unpredictable landscape, and the mixture of joy and the deprivation that sits in the people.
