On International Holocaust Remembrance Day …
We remember— and we speak up. Never Forget. Never Again.
Jan. 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. As an organization committed to Intellectual Awareness and Social Responsibility, we work toward stopping all forms of hate. Holocaust education is a critical component of antisemitism prevention.
