Jan 27, International Holocaust Remembrance Day

28 Jan 2024, Samaria:  In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly voted to remember International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan 27 each year, the date of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

However, this is separate from the Israeli “Yom haShoah” (Day of the Holocaust) which has been memorialized in spring of each year in Israel ever since 1949.
