Holocaust Memorial Day in Canada


International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated annually by the United Nations on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. This year, Italy is the chair country of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. It is a global day of memorialisation for the victims of the Holocaust.  Each year, Canadians and individuals all over the world take this opportunity to remember the victims of the atrocities of the Holocaust and reflect on the dangers of antisemitism.  This year, the Canadian Museum of Human Rights is proud to partner with the Freeman Family Foundation Holocaust Education Centre of the Jewish Heritage Centre of Western Canada, B’nai Brith Canada, Congregation Shaarey Zedek, La Lupa di Roma Lodge and the Dante Alighieri Society in exploring the legacy of the Holocaust and the continuing damaging effects of antisemitism and prejudice.  You are invited to join us for a talk at the Holy Rosary Parish Hall, Roy Poltronetti Room by Father Sam Argenziano on the response of the Catholic Church to the Holocaust.  The talk will be followed by a Q&A and reception.

 Holy Rosary Parish Hall, Roy Poltronetti Room, 19:00
