UN - International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust - January 27

Posted 12/20/2017

“Holocaust Remembrance: Educating for a Better Future”

 The theme for the Holocaust remembrance and education activities in 2017, including the Holocaust Memorial Ceremony, is “Holocaust Remembrance: Educating for a Better Future”. The theme emphasises the universal dimension of Holocaust education as a platform for building respect for human rights, increasing tolerance and defending our common humanity. The Holocaust was a defining point in history and its lessons have much to teach about the danger of extremism and the prevention of genocide today.
