January 27: Day of Remembrance for the Victims of National Socialism
Seventy-two years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Red Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp, calling the world’s attention to the unimaginable horrors that took place there during World War II. The scope of the atrocities at Auschwitz has made it the epitome of inhumanity; like no other, this place bears witness to the crimes against humanity of the Shoah, for the murder of millions of Europe’s Jews at the hands of Germans. It is our permanent obligation to never ever forget the atrocities committed by Germany during the Shoah.
In today’s world with rising hatred, anti-Semitism and nationalism, memories must be constantly recalled. Let us stand together in peace, tolerance and solidarity.
