“On this Day, we come together to remember one of

the most heinous crimes of our time: the systematic

killing of six million Jewish men, women and

children and millions of others by

the Nazis and their collaborators

in the Holocaust.

We pledge that we will never forget. We vow to tell

their  stories and  honour them  by  defending 

everyone’s right to live with dignity in a just

and peaceful world.

Seventy-five years ago, the liberation of the death

camps ended the carnage but horrified the world,

as the full scope of the Nazis’

crimes became clear.

Out of these horrors, the United Nations was created

to bring countries together for peace and our

common humanity, and to prevent any

repetition of such crimes against humanity.


The resurgence of hatred in recent years, from violent

extremism to attacks on places of worship,

shows that antisemitism, other forms of

religious bigotry, racism and prejudice

are still very much with us.

Seventy-five years on, neo-Nazis and white supremacists

are resurgent, and there are continued efforts to

diminish the Holocaust and deny or downplay

the responsibility of perpetrators.

But just as hatred persists, so must our resolve to fight it.  

Today and every day, we commemorate the victims

of the Holocaust by pursuing truth, remembrance

and education, and by building peace

and justice around the world."

The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme

"Rejecting any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, the General Assembly adopted a resolution (A/RES/60/7) by consensus condemning "without reserve" all manifestations of religious intolerance, incitement, harassment or violence against persons or communities based on ethnic origin or religious belief, whenever they occur.

The resolution declared that the United Nations would designate 27 January -- the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp -- as an annual International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, and urged Member States to develop educational programmes to instil the memory of the tragedy in future generations to prevent genocide from occurring again. It requested the United Nations Secretary-General to establish an outreach programme on the "Holocaust and the United Nations", as well as institute measures to mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education, in order to help prevent future acts of genocide.

In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution 61/255 which also condemns any denial of the Holocaust and urges all Member States unreservedly to reject any denial of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say "never again". The significance of resolution A/RES/60/7 is that it calls for a remembrance of past crimes with an eye towards preventing them in the future."

Men, Women and Children

Young and Old Alike;

Slaughtered during the Nazi Holocaust:

Lawlessly killed Morning, Noon and


More than six-million Souls were

ripped  apart  in  utter  despair . . .

Before the eyes of Heaven and Earth:

Abominable! Unjust! Unfair!


Tyranny launched a most heinous


Monstrous crimes - even in the flesh -

against Humanity's Fathers, Sons,

Mothers and Daughters!

And all this took place -

In the 20th Century: a telling sign of


utter lawlessness and  disgrace!

The World as a Whole shall

darkness, sorrowful grief and great pain!

The World as a Whole make'th

clear and plain of Tyranny's horrors:
