The International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust is observed annually on January 27th. This day marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in 1945, and is an opportunity for the international community to remember and honor the millions of Jews and other victims who were murdered by the Nazi regime during World War II.
The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was a systematic extermination of millions of Jews, as well as other minority groups, by the Nazi regime during the 1930s and 1940s. The scale of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust is difficult to comprehend, with an estimated 6 million Jews and millions of others killed.

On this day, governments, organizations, and individuals take part in a wide range of activities to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust, such as ceremonies, educational programs, and exhibitions.
It is important to remember the Holocaust and its victims, not only to honor those who lost their lives, but also to learn from the past and ensure that the atrocities committed during the Holocaust are never repeated.
