January 27 Is International Holocaust Remembrance Day

January 27, 2014

The Corning Centre joins all genocide education programs and centres across the country in remembering the Jewish Holocaust. Working together to educate new generations about the importance of being upstanders in society is vital to ensuring that communities are grounded in the understanding, accepting and valuing of differences, diversity and multiculturalism. The history of the Jewish Holocaust and the memories of those who survived are full of lessons about the consequences of harbouring hatred against one another. Genocide education strives to inform and inspire generations in hopes of creating societies that state their commitment to Never Again with pride and confidence.
