Today is Holocaust Memorial Day

(across the United Kingdom)

Holocaust Memorial Day takes place on 27 January every year in the UK. It marks the anniversary of the liberation in 1945, by the Soviet Union, of the largest Nazi death camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau, towards the end of World War II. The Holocaust (or Shoah in Hebrew) claimed the lives of six million Jewish men, women, and children between 1933, when Hitler came to power in Germany, and 1945, when the Nazis were finally defeated.

The commemorative poster shown above is by my friend Dan Reisinger: “This is a photo of an authentic yellow Star of David we were forced to wear prior to deportation—preserved in my family since 1944.”
