Commemoration day: 27 January

On 1 November 2005, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 60/7 in which it resolved that the United Nations will designate 27 January as an annual International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the victims of the Holocaust. Many states choose to commemorate the Holocaust on the day that marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp by the Red Army on 27 January 1945.

In this section you will find information on whether EU member states have adopted 27th January as a commemoration day as well as other national remembrance days.
