Marking 75 Years Since the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau

Marking 75 Years Since the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau

On 27 January 1945, Soviet forces liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp, discovering the largest Nazi killing center in Europe. Auschwitz has become a symbol of the Holocaust, representing the depths of man's inhumanity to man. This year marks 75 years since this event.

In November 2005, the United Nations passed a resolution to mark 27 January as an international day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Holocaust. Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremonies will be organized on the international, national, regional and local levels, including in universities and schools.
