Part of the The Holocaust and its Contexts book series (HOLC)


This chapter explores the contribution that David Cesarani made to both Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) and Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT). Demonstrating the impact of HMD, we are able to show the far-reaching impact of Cesarani’s contribution as, firstly a founding trustee and secondly as a historical adviser. The chapter also gives some background to the establishment of both HMD and HMDT, in which Cesarani was heavily involved.



HMDT would like to acknowledge Henry Grunwald and Cathy Ashley for their contributions to this chapter and would like to thank all our trustees, past and present for the work that they do. A special acknowledgement must also go to Dawn Waterman and to David, for the never-ending support he provided.
