Never Again means Never Forget.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day | Thursday January 27, 2022
To honour the memory of the six million Jewish children, women, and men murdered by the Nazis, the United Nations designated January 27 International Holocaust Remembrance Day. So we can collectively mark this important occasion, the World Jewish Congress launched the We Remember campaign. Join millions around the world and photograph yourself holding a sign that says #WeRemember and post it social media. Many of the images will be projected on a screen at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Ready to get involved? Here’s how!
Take a photo holding the sign
Upload it to social media
The 27th of January is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the date on which the Auschwitz camp was liberated in 1945, and a day of commemoration for the victims of the Holocaust, or Shoah, in countless places around the world.Please join us to make sure that the #Holocaust is never forgotten by supporting the World Jewish Congress’ We Remember campaign on social media. It will culminate in the projection of photos from around the world on the Auschwitz-Birkenau site, which will be live-streamed via Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
