The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust and created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims.
This year, Holocaust remembrance week is April 27–May 4, 2014. The Museum designated Confronting the Holocaust: American Responses as the theme for the 2014 observance.
