World Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

World Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

On Sunday, 28 January, the Cape Town and Holocaust and Genocide center will also be holding a commemoration ceremony, to be addressed by well-known South African Advocate, Anton Katz, who also sits on the United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on Mercenaries.

Simon Johnson, chief executive of the Jewish Leadership Council, said: "It is hard to believe anybody can neglect to mention Jews when writing a Holocaust Memorial Day message, let alone the Leader of the Opposition".

International Holocaust Remembrance Day falls each year on January 27, the day the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camps were liberated.

Zeid pointed to the statement of Primo Levi, who survived the Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp: "It happened, therefore it can happen again. Holocaust education remains central to building up resilience against all forms of hatred in our European societies, and the European Parliament has provided a useful definition of anti-Semitism for better education and training".

The Mumbai Indians were among the quietest teams on the day, paying big bucks to retain Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard. Kings XI Punjab have bought Yuvraj Singh, one of the cleanest hitters to have ever played for India at 2 crores.

"On Holocaust Remembrance Day we mourn and grieve the murder of 6 million innocent Jewish men, women and children, and the millions of others who perished in the evil Nazi Genocide. In their death camps and under their inhuman rule, the Nazis also enslaved and killed millions of Slavs, Roma, gays, people with disabilities, priests and religious leaders, and others who courageously opposed their brutal regime", said Trump.

The person said people must be informed that the Holocaust is not just a story, but something that really happened.

"New Zealanders need to know that racist hatred is never OK and we all need to call it out when we see it in front of us".

Campaigners against anti-Semitism responded with outrage after it emerged that Mr Corbyn's entry in a Holocaust Educational Trust (HET) memorial book did not mention Jews. "And I have to say that this event at the European Parliament was very solemn and arranged in such a way that Europe understands what the cost of the Second World War was", Jakobson told ERR's radio news.
