International Holocaust Remembrance Day

The UN General Assembly declared January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. It was on this day in 2005 that the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution № 60/7 “Holocaust Remembrance”, Ukraine adopted the Resolution in 2012, although it was one of the six countries that initiated the document.

This date was chosen not by chance: it was on this day that the prisoners of the largest concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau near Auschwitz, Poland, were released.

Around 1.5 million people in Ukraine were victims of the Holocaust. Places of the largest mass executions of Jews in Ukraine: Babyn Yar (Kyiv) – more than 100,000, Bogdanovka of Odesa region – more than 40,000, Drohobych Yar (Kharkiv) – about 20,000, Kamyanets-Podilsky – 23,600, Dalnyk of Odesa region – about 18,000, Sosonka tract near Rivne – more than 17,000 victims. These terrible events are forever etched in our memory.

We must all learn this terrible lesson so that it never happens again.

We invite you to watch the documentary film UA First “Holocaust. A proven crime“.
