Holocaust Memorial Day takes place annually on the 27th January, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp.  It is the day when the world comes together to remember and to learn about the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur in order to bear witness, promote understanding, and challenge prejudice and hatred.
