International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Light of Remembrance in the windows of Płock
On January 27, on the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp in 1945, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day is held. This day was designated by the UN General Assembly on November 1, 2005.
For many years, the Shalom Foundation has been inviting people to join the commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust by lighting a candle in the window. As Gołda Tencer appeals: “On this day, we would like to recall the shadows of those murdered in the ghettos and camps, a lit candle will be a symbol of remembrance. We appeal to everyone to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust on this day at 6:00 p.m. by placing a lit candle in the window. It is everyone’s duty to “Make sure that the light of remembrance never goes out in our consciousness.”
In response to the appeal of the Shalom Foundation, we encourage you to light a candle in your window on January 27 at 6 p.m.
Our duty is to remember.
