Jan. 27, 2021 - Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Holocaust was part of Adolf Hitler's diabolical plan to change the world order in the early part of the 20th century. He committed genocide against European Jews. About six million Jews, including 1.5 million children, were murdered at concentration camps in Poland and Germany. The world must not only never forget this atrocity but also commit to actions that prevent such hatred and violence.
