Holocaust Remembrance Day

Today’s History
On January 27th, 1943, the 8th Air Force dropped deadly bombs over Nazi Germany. This was an air campaign that paved the way for the D-Day invasion that would happen in 1944. A total of 55 bombers dropped 137 tons of bombs on warehouses, industrial plants and U-boat docks on the port of Wilhemshaven on the North Sea on Jan. 27. It was the first American air attack on the German homeland in World War II.

Paving the Way
The attack on January 27th, 1943 was a result of Nazi Germany’s Holocaust against Jews, people with disabilities, and any others who didn’t fit into the Aryan race. The Aryan race was Adolf Hitler’s plans of the “Master Race.” The Aryan race consisted of people who were full-offspring Germans that had blonde hair, blue eyes, and light colored skin. If one didn’t fit into this race then they were executed by the Nazi’s. The Holocaust was a deplorable time in history.

We Remember the Holocaust
January 27th is an annual day in which we remember the Holocaust. Holocaust Remembrance Day was instituted by the United Nations General Assembly on November 1, 2005. The Holocaust Encyclopedia says that the purpose of this day is two-fold: “to serve as a date for official commemoration of the victims of the Nazi regime and to promote Holocaust education throughout the world.”

“If we lose our memory, we destroy our future.”
– Pope Francis
