International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2021


International Holocaust Remembrance Day

On November 1st, 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27th, the day the Auschwitz extermination camp was liberated in 1945, as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Each year, on or around January 27th, Luxembourg is joining in the international remembrance of the victims of the Shoah and other genocides.

The Day of Commemoration’s explicit aim is to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive and to warn young people of the dangers of intolerance, racial and religious hatred and ignorance of genocides. The activities offered are intended to raise young students’ awareness of often subconscious prejudices and stereotypes, and to encourage them to get actively involved in working towards stronger social cohesion and building a better and fairer world.

On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, film screenings are held in several regional cinemas across Luxembourg. They are aimed at students and teachers of Luxembourgish secondary schools, as well as the general public.
