International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2013

The Courage to Care”.

In November 2005, the United Nations passed a resolution to mark January 27 as an international day of commemoration to honor the victims of the Holocaust, and urged member states to develop educational programs to impart the memory of this tragedy to future generations. Eighteen governments have legislated January 27 as an annual Holocaust Memorial Day and Holocaust remembrance ceremonies will be organized on the international, national, regional and local levels, including in universities and schools.

PM Netanyahu to the Cabinet (27 Jan): “In the perspective of the almost 75 years that have passed since the Holocaust, what has not changed is the desire to annihilate the Jews. What has changed is the ability of the Jews to defend themselves.

Anti-Semitism has not disappeared and – to our regret – neither has the desire to destroy a considerable part of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. They exist and they are strong. Holocaust-denial is being spread by one of the world’s major countries, not by a group or by individual countries or by marginal elements, but by Iran which, today, from the UN or any other platform, is the leader of Holocaust-denial while preparing for what they deem to be another Holocaust – the destruction of the state of the Jews.”

The 2013 observance of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust is built around the theme “Rescue during the Holocaust: The Courage to Care”, honoring those who risked their own lives to save Jews and others from near certain death under the Nazi regime during the Second World War in Europe.

    Why is there no Communist Holocaust Memorial Day? There have been and are many millions more victims of world wide Communism than Nazism. Could it be because Communism is Jewish and that the media in the western world is, to a great extent, dominated by them? Just wondering
