About the event

The Holocaust was the state-sponsored persecution and murder of six million Jews by the Nazi rulers, allies, and collaborators. The Days of Remembrance was established as the country’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust by the United States Congress. The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum is responsible for leading the country in commemorating Days of Remembrance and also for encouraging these commemorations. It is crucial to keep the memories of the Holocaust alive because Holocaust denial, anti-Semitism, and racism are again raising their ugly heads around the globe. It is critical to keep memories of the Holocaust preserved as even fewer survivors can share their stories with us today. Click HERE to view the resources developed by National Today.
