International Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorates the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau.
On this annual day of commemoration, the UN urges every member state to honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.
Judy Weissenberg Cohen was born in Debrecan, Hungary in 1928. As the Nazis occupy Hungary, Judy's world is shattered and is faced with the incomprehensible- Auschwitz-Birkenau. In the shadow of the gas chambers, she clings to her sisters and "camp sisters", who are her only hope of enduring the miseries that are to come.
Judy is an active speaker and Holocaust and human rights educator. In 2001 she founded the website "Women and the Holocaust” which collects testimony, literature, and scholarly material exploring the specific gender-based experiences of women in the Holocaust.
Ellin Beaumont has planned and organized community and educational events and programs for the Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program at The Azrieli Foundation over the past thirteen years. During the pandemic, Ellin has organized and facilitated numerous virtual programs and interviews with survivor authors published through the Memoirs Program.
