"Today we honour the memory of the six million Jews and millions of others who were systematically murdered in

the Holocaust by the Nazis and their collaborators.


This year’s anniversary takes place under the shadow

of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has revealed

longstanding fractures and injustices in our

societies and contributed to a resurgence

in antisemitism and xenophobia.


The Holocaust was the culmination of two

millennia of discrimination, attacks, expulsions

and periodic mass killings of Jews. It should

have ended antisemitism for good.


But it did not.  Antisemitism unfortunately 

remains alive  and well.  


Today, white supremacists and neo-Nazis are resurgent, organizing and recruiting across borders, intensifying

their efforts to deny, distort and rewrite history

including the Holocaust.


The COVID-19 pandemic has given them new

opportunities to target minorities, based on religion,

race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation,

disability and immigration status.


We must make urgent joint efforts to stop them.


As we consider the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,

we must address the fragilities and gaps exposed by

the pandemic and strengthen our mutual bonds,

based on our common humanity.


This year must be a year of healing. Healing from the

pandemic, and healing our broken societies in which

hatred has all too easily taken root.


As we remember those who died in the Holocaust and

honour the survivors, our best tribute is the creation

of a world of equality, justice and dignity for all.

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."

Slaughtered during the Nazi Holocaust:

Lawlessly killed Morning, Noon and


More than six-million Souls were

Abominable! Unjust! Unfair!

Monstrous crimes - even in the flesh -

Mothers and Daughters!

And all this took place -

In the 20th Century: a telling sign of


utter lawlessness and  disgrace!
