UN to vote on establishment of global Holocaust remembrance day
The proposal calls for January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, to be recognized as the day which the UN marks as Holocaust Day. In recent years, a few European states have set an annual date on their calendar to commemorate the Holocaust.
As part of the UN proposal, all member states will be called upon to develop an educational curriculum meant to instill the memory of the Holocaust among the coming generations in order to prevent future instances of genocide.
