Key to Europe

Today is the International Holocaust Remembrance Day that marks the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest concentration and death camp of Nazi Germany, 75 years ago. Since the International Holocaust Remembrance Day was established by the United Nations in 2006, it serves as a reminder to honor the memory of six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust alongside millions of other people killed under the Nazi regime of Germany.

The International Holocaust Remembrance Day highlights once again how important the roles of education and the development of educational programs are to prevent and fight against the rise in anti-Semitism, xenophobia, racism and Islamophobia in today’s world. As AEGEE-Europe, we are well aware that it is essential to resolutely fight against these hate-based phenomena that pose threats to global peace, security and stability.

With each year that passes, the people who survived and are able to tell their stories diminish. Within 25 years, it is likely that no Holocaust survivors will remain. It is therefore up to us to remember and honor those who perished and ensure, this’ll never happen again.
