Holocaust Remembrance Day is an essential reminder for the world to never forget the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi’s during World War II. It is also a call to action, for each of us to condemn any effort to sow that kind of hate or trivialize what was in fact the murder of over six million Jewish people.
