We may be able to help you to attend events in Cambridge such as a Saturday subject masterclass, a department open day, a science festival event, or any college open day by offering you free B&B accommodation in King's College the night before.

Holocaust Memorial Day 2015: Keeping the Memory Alive

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, which remembers the victims of genocide across time and countries. 27 January marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps. 2015 is especially significant, since it is the 70th anniversary since the liberation of Auschwitz and the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Srebenica, Bosnia. This year's theme, Keeping the Memory Alive, asks us to reflect on the relationship between history and memory: how does one alter the other? What does it mean to memorialise the past and how shall we do it?
