Holocaust Memorial Day
Today is 'Holocaust Memorial Day'.
Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) is commemorated internationally on 27th January each year. This date was chosen as it is the anniversary of the day in 1945 on which the Soviet Army liberated the largest Nazi concentration camp – Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Thanks to everyone who followed the link to the HMD website and lit the virtual candle in memory of those who suffered.
