January 27th is Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorated annually in Canada and many countries worldwide. It marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Soviets, on this date in 1945. 

Auschwitz-Birkenau was one of many Nazi concentration camps, its liberation marked the beginning of the end of the second World War. On this day, we commemorate the 6 million Jewish children, women, and men who were murdered during the Holocaust, along with the many other minorities who were prosecuted. 

We know the hate and antisemitism that fueled the Holocaust still exists today.  This day recognizes these injustices and looks to bring awareness to genocide, in hopes that history does not repeat itself.
