International Holocaust Remembrance Day

Date: Monday, January 27 2020
Time: 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: 395 Wellington St.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27th) commemorates the victims of the Holocaust. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly on November 1, 2005 in a resolution that followed a special session held earlier that year during which the United Nations General Assembly marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps and the end of the Holocaust. 

On behalf of Library Archives Canada and our partners, we invite you to the Ottawa commemoration of this important day. 

With a special address from Pinchas Gutter, a Holocaust Survivor who has spent much of his life raising awareness about the importance of Holocaust education. Pinchas is the first Holocaust Survivor to be immortalized in an interactive three-dimensional projection in the USC Shoah Foundation’s New Dimensions in Testimony. At the event, he will discuss his own experience as well as the future of Holocaust Survivor testimonies.

This important commemoration is proudly hosted by Library & Archives Canada in partnership with CIJA, Jewish Federation of Ottawa, The Centre for Holocaust Education & Scholarship, and the Wallenberg Citation Initiative.

Previous events from 2020 will be listed here after they’ve occurred.
