The word is out on HMD

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE THEME for Holo­caust Memo­rial Day 2018 will be The Power of Words, the HMD Trust an­nounced in Birm­ing­ham on Wed­nes­day. Olivia Mark­sWold­man, the HMDT chief ex­ec­u­tive, said it would re­flect “the im­pact words had in the Holo­caust and in sub­se­quent geno­cides through pro­pa­ganda used to fuel stereo­types, slogans writ­ten in re­sis­tance and mem­oirs writ­ten to record and re­spond to what was go­ing on. The words we choose to use in­flu­ence those around us. We have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to ex­am­ine words crit­i­cally and to use words care­fully.”
