Today, in 1945, the Soviet Red Army liberated the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
In 2005 the United Nations established today as a day to remember the victims of the Holocaust.
The DRVH or Days of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust is an eight year day period of commemorations as designated by the United States Congress.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum sets a theme each year.
The DRVH is observed in late April every year. I will be blogging about The Diary of Anne Frank at that time.
