On January 27th, 1945, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest concentration and death camp, was liberated by the Russian Red Army.
Of the 1.3 million individuals sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died.
In 2005 the United Nations designated January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, urging world countries to honor the 6 million Jewish victims and millions of other victims of Nazism and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides.
