The International Holocaust Remembrance

0
1919

Documents of the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg testify that 2.8 million European citizens were killed in Auschwitz, with those of the Jewish faith accounting for approximately 90 percent. The November 1, 2005, resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly on holocaust remembrance called on member countries to create educational programs to preserve the memory of the Holocaust, saying:”The Holocaust, which resulted in the murder of one third of the Jewish people, along with countless members of other minorities, will forever be a warning to all people of the dangers of hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice.” The topic of the 2015 International Holocaust Remembrance Day is Liberty, Life and the Legacy of the Holocaust Survivors.
