United Kingdom - WWII Genocide Memorial Day

WWII Genocide Memorial Day

This year: Friday, January 27, 2017

27 January is the anniversary of the liberation date of Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. During the years 1942 - 1944 Nazi Germany transported millions of people from the captured territories to killing camps, where they were murdered in gas chambers. Each year on this day hundreds of events are held across the UK to commit to memory the victims of the Holocaust and of other genocides. 27 January, named Holocaust Memorial Day, is established as the international day of remembrance of that awful past in order to make people to cut any possibility for it to be repeated ever again. Auschwitz will remain forever a chilling indictment on the cruelty capable by members of the human race towards its own kind. If we leave the security of our countries to rest on the shoulders of the local homeland security, it is a burden that they cannot and inevitably will not be able to always deliver on. The only way to remove a bad tooth is to cut it out and you do that by going to the root of the problem. After a little pain you will feel a lot of relief.

Different ceremonies are organised this day in many cities of the country for one major aim - to bring attention not only to Jewish Holocaust, but also to other worldwide criminal acts of racial extermination and intolerance. Anyone who desire to share the memory of Holocaust can take part in the nationwide events.

In commemoration of those millions lost lives the War museums' doors are open on the Holocaust Memorial Day. To bring their tribute to the Holocaust, the museums of London, Manchester, Liverpool, Portsmouth and others will focus their programmes on guided excursions, short films about survivors and refugees. As well there will take place musical performances in commemoration of the Holocaust on 27 January. Sometimes, such manifestations take place even a whole week. Generally, the museums will be free to enter on this day.

There is a very simple act to signify one's commitment to remember the past and create a finer future life - you can join one of these commemoration events or create your own, like lighting a candle or observing a silence.
