On 27th January 1945 Red Army troops liberated prisoners of German concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. To commemorate this day which marks the end of the genocide resulting in the death of an estimated number of 6 million Jews and millions of victims of other nationalities: Poles, Romani, Russians, Greeks, Hungarians, French, Germans and many others, in 2005 United Nations General Assembly designated this day to be an International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
We all take a moment to remember all the victims murdered by the Nazis, but also to remember that an attempt by the Germans to annihilate the entire Jewish nation and erase it from the memory of our time failed. The Jewish nation has survived and the memory of the victims is alive.
For this occasion European Network Remembrance and Solidarity together with the House of the Wannsee Conference prepared a special short animated film „Memento”, directed by Hungarian director Zoltán Szilágyi Varga.
We are kindly asking you for a minute of your time to remember all the victims of the Holocaust.
