International Holocaust Remembrance Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, observed on January 27th each year, commemorates the systematic genocide of six million Jews, along with millions of others, by the Nazi regime and its collaborators during World War II. This solemn day serves as a reminder of the horrors of the Holocaust, honoring the memory of those who perished and reflecting on the importance of preventing such atrocities in the future. It encourages education, remembrance, and reflection to ensure that the lessons of the Holocaust are never forgotten and that efforts to combat prejudice, discrimination, and hatred persist.
