Learning lessons from the past

This Friday, 27th January, marks Holocaust Memorial Day.  The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) is the charity, established by the Government, which promotes and supports HMD in the UK.  HMDT encourages and inspires individuals and organisations across the UK to play their part in learning lessons from the past and creating a safer, better future.

Many of our Derbyshire libraries will have displays of books, posters and material from their collections relating to the holocaust, Jewish history and culture.

Here at the record office we have a small display of material from our local studies collection which include guides to Jewish genealogy and tracing Jewish ancestors, articles relating to Jewish history and information on the Holocaust and other subsequent genocides.  There is a free HMD booklet to take away.

So if you are visiting us, do take a look.
