The United Nations designated January 27—the anniversary of the 1945 liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—as a day for member states to honor the Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism. Join us online for the Museum's annual commemoration in the Hall of Witness.

A living memorial to the Holocaust, the Museum inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. Today we face an alarming rise in Holocaust denial and antisemitism—even in the very lands where the Holocaust happened—and threats of genocide in other parts of the world. Each year the Museum reaches millions of people worldwide with the lessons about the dangers of unchecked hatred.
