In 2022, the theme guiding the United Nations #HolocaustRemembrance and education is “Memory, Dignity and Justice.”
#Holocaust commemoration and education is a global imperative in the third decade of the 21st century.
The writing of history and the act of remembering brings… dignity and justice to those whom the perpetrators of the Holocaust intended to obliterate.
Safeguarding the historical record, remembering the victims, challenging the distortion of history often expressed in contemporary antisemitism, are critical aspects of claiming justice after atrocity crimes.
The 2022 theme encompasses these concerns.
Please join us in honouring #InternationalHolocaustRemembranceDay.
