International Holocaust Remembrance Day- A series of events

January 28, 2018

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated annually by the United Nations on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. This year, Italy is the chair country of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. It is a global day of memorialisation for the victims of the Holocaust. Each year, Canadians and individuals all over the world take this opportunity to remember the victims of the atrocities of the Holocaust and reflect on the dangers of antisemitism.

This year, the Museum is proud to partner with the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre of the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada, B'nai Brith Canada, Congregation Shaarey Zedek, La Lupa di Roma Lodge and the Dante Alighieri Society in exploring the legacy of the Holocaust and the continuing damaging effects of antisemitism and prejudice in societies across the world today.
