International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Every year, January 27th is a solemn international celebration called “International Holocaust Remembrance Day”. The Holocaust is a Holocaust committed by Nazi Germany during World War II under the name of racial cleansing. International Holocaust Remembrance Day is an anniversary to honor more than 6 million Jewish victims.

In 2005, the United Nations designated the day as “International Holocaust Remembrance Day” in time for the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camps (January 27, 1945) in order not to forget the most terrible event in human history.

And every year since then, through memorial ceremonies, the world has been emphasizing the message of peace in memory of the victims of the horrendous massacres in history, including the Holocaust.
