The experience of the Holocaust has shown us that during that hard period in Europe's history there were people who had the strength and courage not to stay indifferent to the injustice done to the Jewish people.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Day was designated by the United Nations in 2005, the month and day chosen are those of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and death camp by the Red Army on January 27, 1945.
A Holocaust Memorial Day statement released by U.K. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn made no reference to the approximately six million Jewish victims of the genocide.
The victims were killed the Nazi regime in the Second World War, which resulted in the deaths "of one third [six million] of Jewish people, along with countless members of other minorities".
He said Neo Nazis and white supremacy groups are among the main purveyors of extreme hatred.
Elsewhere, the American president, Donald Trump, also commemorated the day, and said "Our Nation [the United States] is indebted to the Holocaust's survivors" and that the country "will confront anti-Semitism".
Trump added: "As I have said: 'We will stamp out prejudice".
The objective of Holocaust Memorial Day is to learn the lessons of the past, to honour the survivors of genocides and use their experience to inform lives today. That's because-and you can be forgiven for forgetting this in a year of non-stop scandals-its statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day last year did not mention Jews.
The United Nations started off the worldwide Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday by stating "The Holocaust began with words - and in the era of the internet & social media the power of propaganda is more devastating than ever". "We will bear witness, and we will act'". Administration officials said the statement's aim was to honor all victims of the Holocaust, not just the Jews.
