International Holocaust Remembrance Day – 2025

January 27, 2025 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Candles lit in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day

The United Nations General Assembly designated January 27 the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a time to remember the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and the millions of other victims, including those of the LGBTQIA+ community, of evil Nazi persecution.

As we are witnessing an alarming rise of antisemitism around the globe, it is more important than ever for us to recognize the critical lessons of Holocaust history as we commemorate the victims and honor the survivors.

How to Mark the Day

At the Museum and other commemoration sites, we remember Holocaust victims by reading their names, by lighting candles, and by learning about the Holocaust. All of us can mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day by sharing the truth of the Holocaust and by confronting antisemitism and hate in our daily lives.
