Never again.

“…lasting peace must draw on the mutual understanding of peoples and cultures, nurtured through education and knowledge sharing, in ways that highlight the best of humanity in ourselves. The Holocaust has shown us the worst of ourselves, and remembrance of the victims must accompany us in our quest for a world where such horrors will never reoccur.”
Irina Bokova, UNESCO Director General

On January 27, 1945, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Extermination Camp was finally liberated. Today, 70 years later, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we remember, mourn, reflect, and rebuild.

Never again.
