Date : 27th January
The International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust is observed on January 27th every year to honor the memory of the millions of innocent men, women, and children who fell victim to the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis during World War II. This day was officially proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in November 2005.
The purpose of this day is to ensure that the horrors of the Holocaust are never forgotten and to educate future generations about the dangers of anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of intolerance and discrimination. It highlights the importance of promoting tolerance and respect for all human beings, regardless of their race, religion, ethnicity, or background. Also, this day provides an opportunity for individuals and communities to reflect on the lessons of the past and build a more compassionate world where the dignity and rights of every human being are protected.
