Thailand remembers Holocaust victims

Thailand remembers Holocaust victims

Harnessing hope and optimism as the time-proven keys to survival and revival, this year’s remembrance theme was entitled “Rescue during the Holocaust, The Courage to Care” and focused on celebrating those few courageous people who risked their lives to rescue victims from the clutches of death. This year’s event illuminated those small flickers of light in a dark and ominous era, and serves to teach the lessons of the Holocaust in today’s world. 

The official date of the UN International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust is January 27 and was chosen by the UN to mark the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp in 1945.
