It has been over 60 years since the Holocaust. The Holocaust seems part of ancient history but the Holocaust remains real and ever-present to survivors. Holocaust Memorial Day provides an opportunity to learn historical lessons to create a safer, better future. The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany and ended in 1945 when the Nazis were defeated by the Allied powers. The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany; killing thousands of handicapped Germans by lethal injection and poisonous gas and shooting massive numbers of Jews and Gypsies in open fields. This had ended in 1945 when the Nazis and Adolf Hitler’s were defeated by the Allied powers. On the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp, the millions of Jews and others killed during the Holocaust are being remembered. Share their memory with others across the UK, and honor the victims of genocide around the world as part of Holocaust Memorial Day in order to challenge hatred and persecution.
