Holocaust Memorial Day:

Seventy five years ago on 27 January, 1945, the Gates of Auschwitz were opened and the world knew. Millions of people were murdered but genocide is something, which has occurred across time and place and has occurred recently in countries such as Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur and Bosnia. Each year the world remembers the victims and also pledges to continue to work for a lasting peace free from discrimination, racism and hatred.

This film explains what is marked on Holocaust Memorial Day and why it is important for everyone to get involved
