27 th JANUARY

Every year around 27 January, UNESCO pays tribute to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and reaffirms its unwavering commitment to counter antisemitism, racism, and other forms of intolerance that may lead to group-targeted violence. The date marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet troops on 27 January 1945. It was officially proclaimed, in november 2005, International Day (link is external)of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust by the United Nations General Assembly.
The Holocaust profoundly affected countries in which Nazi crimes were perpetrated, but also had universal implications and consequences in many other parts of the world. Member States share a collective responsibility for addressing the residual trauma, maintaining effective remembrance policies, caring for historic sites, and promoting education, documentation and research, seven decades after the genocide. This responsibility entails educating about the causes, consequences and dynamics of such crimes so as to strengthen the resilience of young people against ideologies of hatred. As genocide and atrocity crimes keep occurring across several regions, and as we are witnessing a global rise of anti-Semitism and hateful discourses, this has never been so relevant.

I'm not being anti-sematic or anything but we should also remember the other groups who died, once more I'm not saying what the Jews went through wasn't horrible.
shyvas post covers over groups :)

I get your point but firstly this thread is about human holocausts. It's essentiel that we never forget and also pay our respects to those who never came back and also to the very few survivors that are now in their 90's. We should also remember all of the holocausts that have taken place in the previous years.


If you want to post the YT video (Smithfield Foods) in the Animal section (under Animal welfare) if would have more of an impact. You are free to do so.

Today is holocaust remembrance day, so please refrain from any conflicting debate. Humans and animals all deserve to live a peaceful, healthy life.

The end of the movie/film Schindler's List and seeing all the Jews that he saved is very emotional. What a wonderful human being he was.
That is his wife, Emilie that is in a wheelchair (towards the end) who also pays her respects.
