January 27 is also International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005, it marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau in January 1945 and is commemorated by UNESCO to “pay tribute to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and [to] reaffirm its unwavering commitment to counter antisemitism, racism, and other forms of intolerance that may lead to group-targeted violence.”
