International Holocaust Remembrance Day


January 27 is the day established by the United Nations in 2005 for all nations to remember the Holocaust committed by the Nazis.




From 1933 and 1945 they eliminated 6-million Jews, two-thirds of Europe’s Jewish population and countless others. Just as the Ottomans chose to settle their “Armenian question” in 1915, the Nazis attempted to implement their “final solution” to their “Jewish question.”






January 27 was chosen as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day as this was the date on which the Red Army liberated the concentration camp at Auschwitz in 1945.






And yet, chaos continues throughout the world. We humans are dreadfully slow to evolve.
