Never too young to remember - International Holocaust Remembrance Day

“If we bear all this suffering and if there are still Jews left, 
when it is over, then Jews, instead of being doomed, 
will be held up as an example.” 

Anne Frank


January 27th is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day


On 27 January 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated by the Soviet troops during World War II.
