Holocaust Memorial Day, observed annually, remembers the estimated 6 million Jews systematically slaughtered in the Nazi genocide which wiped out two thirds of Europe’s Jewish population. On January 27, the world remembers those murdered and reflects on the atrocities of World War II in an effort to ensure that mankind does not repeat the horrific mistakes of its past.
Holocaust Memorial Day 2018 marks the 73nd anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland by the Soviet Red Army, eight months before the war officially ended.
