Yom Hashoah: Holocaust Remembrance Day
February 14 @ 1:00 am - 10:00 am
Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorates the 6 million Jews and millions of others who were killed in the Holocaust. The date is set in accordance with the Hebrew calendar, on the 27th of Nisan, so that it varies in regard to the Gregorian calendar. The date was chosen to mark the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. This year, 2023, Holocaust Remembrance Day begins on April 17th at sunset and ends on April 18th at sunset.
January 27 was designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005. It marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Every year, the Holocaust Center for Humanity holds a community program to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
