2024 Days of Remembrance Commemoration

Each year during Days of Remembrance, the nation commemorates the six million Jews who were murdered during the Holocaust and the other victims of Nazi persecution. Their history warns us of the consequences when antisemitism remains unchecked and inspires people everywhere to confront hatred. Preserving their memory—while also honoring survivors, rescuers, and liberators—provides an opportunity to learn about how and why the Holocaust happened and to reflect on our common humanity. The national ceremony featured remarks by President Joseph Biden. House Speaker Mike Johnson and Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries also participated.
