International Holocaust Memorial Day

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

In memory of the Holocaust, the United Nations (UN) remembers on January 27 each year, this day which is called International Holocaust Remembrance Day. An article, "Heroic Act of Resistance at Auschwitz-Birkenau" was published in commemoration http://ifounditinthearchives.tumblr.com/
The article has a link http://tinyurl.com/87dok66

The report was declassified in 2010 and the Associated Press found it at the US National Archives as part of their ongoing effort to mine the eight million secret records that have been declassified under the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act of 1998.

Thank you to Randy Herschaft of the Associated Press for bringing this to our attention.
