International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust

The Holocaust resulted in the murder of one third of the Jewish people along with other minorities. It will forever be a warning to all people of the dangers of hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice. International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, reminding the world to prevent future acts of genocide, is observed with ceremonies and activities worldwide. The UN General Assembly designated this Day in its 2005 resolution A/RES/60/7.
