27 gennaio - Un giorno per non dimenticare, per non dimenticarvi

In 2005,
the United Nations General Assembly
designated January 27
as an annual international day of commemoration
to honor the victims of the Nazi era.

This date marks the anniversary
of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau,
the largest Nazi death camp.

Every member nation of the U.N. has an obligation
to honor the memory of Holocaust victims
and develop educational programs
as part of the resolve to help prevent
future acts of genocide.

The U.N. resolution rejects denial of the Holocaust,
and condemns discrimination and violence
based on religion or ethnicity.
