FRA on International Holocaust Remembrance Day - 27 January

27 January is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the universal commemoration day for the millions of innocent victims of the Shoah: Jews, Roma, homosexuals and others who were systematically murdered by the Nazis.

FRA Director Morten Kjaerum: "The Shoah is an immense human tragedy, the embodiment of evil in our time. The best tribute we can pay to the victims is to learn from it, to promote its remembrance and to educate the younger generations about the importance of respect for every human being."
