The United Nations designated International Holocaust Remembrance Day—January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau—to remember the six million Jewish victims and millions of other victims of the Holocaust and to help prevent future genocides. Join us online for the Museum's annual commemoration in the Hall of Remembrance.

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.
