The International Holocaust Remembrance Day has been designated on January 27th. This international memorial day honors the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and develops educational programs to help prevent future genocides. In addition, this day puts light on the history of Auschwitz concentration camp being liberated by the Red Army in 1945.
On this annual day of remembrance, the United Nations calls on all member states to commemorate and honor the Holocaust’s victims and several million other people that fell prey to the gruesome acts of Nazi Germany. Under the influence of the UN, it is encouraged to develop educational programs that condemn such future genocides while addressing the remaining trauma of victims. Furthermore, it has been urged to ensure the development of effective policies, thoroughly researched documentation, and educational programs that reflect the significance of the incident.
While genocide and atrocity crimes have been an unavoidable part of the world, the UN encourages the world to stand against anti-Semitism and hate speech. Besides visiting museums and studying about Holocaust, International Holocaust Remembrance Day works as a reminder to help the families of victims through donations and charities.
We join together on January 27 for International Holocaust Remembrance Day when we remember the Nazi’s act of genocide so that no one else will suffer like that again. Moving forward, we being responsible nations should discover non-violent alternatives to solving conflicts while promoting peace initiatives and banding together. By maintaining peace as a foundational element between countries, people, and nature, we all can make the world a better place.
