International Holocaust Remembrance Day January 27, six candles lit in memory of the six million Jewish victims. in the Holocaust.

On November 1, 2005 the United Nations General Assembly voted to adopt Resolution 60/7 that established January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day.   The U.N. urges every member nation-state to respect and honour the memory of the six million Jews and countless numbers of many other minorities who perished.  Most importantly, the U.N. strongly encourages its members to develop educational programs to inform the public about the history of the Holocaust. Such information and knowledge is vital to equip nations to be cognizant of global events so that genocide does not occur again in any part of the world.

The United Nations Organization rejects any form of Holocaust-denial and condemns religious intolerance, racism, hatred, harassment, violence towards any persons or communities based on ethnicity or religion.

The United Nations Organization calls upon relevant states to actively preserve Holocaust sites such as Nazi German death camps, concentration camps, forced-labor camps and prisons; this is imperative to preserve these hallowed grounds as a Remembrance, and to educate the public.

On January 27, 2023, many people around the world will attend commemoration ceremonies to remember the victims who perished in the holocaust.  It is now more important than ever for peace-loving people to show their respect and solidarity -  to defend human rights, and to speak out against tyranny.  As history has shown us time and time again, terrible things occur when good people do nothing.

Every new generation must learn the lessons of the past so that the HOLOCAUST NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.

Ukraine and Israel have long-standing historical ties. Our nations have together experienced all the tragedies in recent history - the Holodomor and the Holocaust, the Second World War, and the totalitarian Soviet regime.                                                                                                                                      President Volodymyr Zelensky
