27th January - Holocaust Memorial Day


 
Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) is commemorated on 27th January each year throughout the world.

The 27th of January was chosen as it is the anniversary of the day in 1945 on which the Soviet Army liberated the largest Nazi concentration camp - Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland
