On 27 January we mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the day on which the concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau was liberated. On this day we honour the memory of all those who were so brutally murdered by the Nazi regime.
On 14-15 January FRA attended an informal meeting in Athens of the EU Council’s Strategic Committee on Immigration, Frontiers and Asylum, where border management and integration of migrants were discussed.
2013 has been a year of achievements in fundamental rights, but also one of great challenges. This is reflected in FRA’s work, with publications this year on the rights of irregular migrants, harassment and discrimination of LGBT people, and experiences of antisemitism.
