Holocaust Memorial Day takes place every year on 27 January, to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi persecution of other groups and in genocides that followed in CambodiaRwandaBosnia and Darfur.

The UK Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 will be streamed online on 27 January at 7pm. At 8pm, get ready to Light the Darkness with us. Households across the UK will be lighting candles and safely putting them in their windows to remember those who were murdered for who they were and to stand against prejudice and hatred today.

Light a candle and put it in your window at 8pm on 27 January (if you are able to do so safely).  #HolocaustMemorialDay #LightTheDarkness

80 years ago, in 1941, in Bern, Switzerland, Polish diplomats, in cooperation with Jewish circles, launched the so-called 'passport initiative' to save Jews from the Holocaust. Aleksander Ładoś and others known as Ładoś Group, issued fake passports and citizenship certificates for Latin American countries saving so many from being sent to death camps.

Lambeth Libraries are grateful to the Pilecki Institute for bringing this unique exhibition, on the work of the Ładoś Group, to London.

The Ładoś List is available online with a full-text search function.
