Accordingly, 27 January was designated by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, commemorating the victims of the holocaust,
This date was selected because it marked the liberation of Auschwitz - Birkenau , the largest extermination camps of the Nazis in the year 1945. In World War II more than six million Jews were killed by the German Nazi regime in Europe just because they were Jews.
This resolution of the United Nations rejected the denials of the Holocaust and condemned discrimination and violence of religion or race .
Holocaust Remembrance Day has become annual and continuous events held by the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam.
Ambassador of Israel Nadav Eshcar, Ambassador of Germany Dr. Guido Hildner, Vice Rector of the Hanoi University of Social Sciences and Humanities Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan, and Resident Coordinator of the UN in Vietnam Kamal Malhotra will attend the commemorative event. They will light up symbolic candles to remember the victims of the Holocaust, a tradition of Israel and Jews around the world.

At the event, the German film “Vernichtet” (Exterminated) is screened. “Vernichtet” (Exterminated) by director Andreas Christoph Schmidt tells the story of the widowed Rosa Labe’s family with her 3 children in Glambeck village of Brandenburg, Germany. From 1938, the Labe family was torn apart and exploited in various places by the German Nazi regime, as long as they were useful labour tools. They were murdered or disappeared and were unable to meet each other again. The painful journey of the Labe family is a horrifying example of what victims of Nazism experienced.
Holocaust Remembrance Day is an opportunity for Vietnamese public have more knowledge about the Holocaust and to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust./.
