January 27 has been designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the United Nations General Assembly. This coincides with the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. 2020 marks 75 years since this event, occurring late in World War II. Few Holocaust survivors remain alive, but their stories have been preserved forever in books and films. You can find some on display to check out at the front of the library.
