This year, International Holocaust Memorial Day will be marked on Wednesday, 27th January 2021. A few months before he passed away, Rabbi Sacks zt"l recorded a series of powerful and insightful videos with the Holocaust Educational Trust, offering his perspective on some of the most challenging questions connected to the Holocaust.

As well as videos, this resource also includes transcripts, questions for further discussions and some additional historical and background information. This 10-part educational series was made possible thanks to the generous support of Richard Harris.
