International Holocaust Remembrance Day

January 27th marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of the Nazi death camps. In October 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated this day as “International Holocaust Remembrance Day” to commemorate and honor the victims of the Nazi era. Note that the UN-sponsored date is NOT the same thing as Yom HaShoah, which occurs in the spring (Nisan 27).
