Holocaust Remembrance Day
- On 1 November 2005, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution introduced by Israel and designated 27 January as Holocaust Remembrance Day. The resolution rejects Holocaust denial and encourages countries to develop educational programs about the horrors of genocide. It also condemns religious intolerance, incitement, harassment, or violence based on ethnic origin or religious belief.
