Today is Holocaust Memorial Day – a day of remembrance during which Jewish communities and individuals worldwide commemorate the six million Jewish people who died during the Holocaust. It coincides with the 27th of Nissan (on the Hebrew calendar) to mark the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, when Jewish resistance fighters defied the Nazis and fought for freedom and dignity.

We must never forget.
