UNESCO Message for the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust
Message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO, on the occasion of the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust, 27 January 2014
Each anniversary of the liberation of the concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau reminds us with horror of the atrocities that were committed by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.
This collapse in the values that underpin our humanity reminds us of the fragility of peace and the urgency of strengthening the pillars of tolerance, respect for others and human rights. This obligation applies to all countries, now and in the future.
