The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme encourages civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education in order to help prevent genocide.

vejam o Discurso da Presidente DILMA ROUSSEF em 27.01.2011  





Rejecting any denial of the Holocaust as a historical event, either in full or in part, the General Assembly adopted by consensus a resolution (A/RES/60/7) condemning "without reserve" all manifestations of religious intolerance, incitement, harassment or violence against persons or communities based on ethnic origin or religious belief, whenever they occur.

It decided that the United Nations would designate 27 January -– the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp -- as an annual International Day of Commemoration to honour the victims of the Holocaust, and urged Member States to develop educational programmes to instil the memory of the tragedy in future generations to prevent genocide from
occurring again, and requested the United Nations Secretary-General to establish an outreach programme on the
"Holocaust and the United Nations", as well as measures to mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education, in order to help prevent future acts of genocide.

The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say "never again"". The significance of resolution A/RES/60/7 is that it calls for a remembrance of past crimes
with an eye towards preventing them in the future.

Cerimônia no Palácio do Itamaraty, no Rio, lembra as pessoas que morreram no massacre em campos de concentração.

A memória é o espelho em que vemos os ausentes”. A frase é do escritor francês Joseph Joubert. No caso, são seis milhões de ausências - os judeus mortos pelo regime nazista durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial. Um episódio de triste memória, mas que deve ser lembrado para que nunca volte a se repetir. Esta quinta-feira (27) é o dia internacional em memória das vítimas do Holocausto, que em 2011 tem como tema as mulheres. No Palácio do Itamaraty, no Rio de Janeiro, uma cerimônia vai lembrar a data.
