Over seventy-seven years ago, the largest concentration and death camp in Europe, Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated on January 21st. Catastrophically, more than six million Jews and millions more people, including Roma and Sinti, Slavs, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ individuals had been killed by the Nazis and their collaborators.
International Holocaust Remembrances Day is a day when we honour the innocent lives lost. We honour too, Holocaust survivors; those who saw true evil and whose lives were unalterably changed by it. Innumerable families were forever changed.
27th January every year.
