International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today – January 27, 2015 – marks International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp by Allied forces during World War II.

On this sombre occasion, the European Shoah Legacy Institute wishes to reaffirm its commitment to working collaboratively with governments on issues of restorative justice, including the restitution or compensation of looted cultural objects and ensuring adequate availability of social welfare for all victims of National Socialism.

May we never forget and never repeat the terrible suffering of the past.
