marking holocaust memorial day at the united nations.

The UN Holocaust Outreach Division is one area where we can all agree the UN does some very impressive work! The UN Information Centres teach the lessons of the Holocaust in countries across the globe!

The theme of Holocaust Remembrance Events in 2017 is "Holocaust Remembrance: Educating for a Better Future". There will be a busy 5 day schedule of events at the UN, starting on Monday 23 January, and closing on Friday 27 January with the annual UN Holocaust Memorial Ceremony.

Check out the extensive list of programs taking place at UN Headquarters in New York here:


The Outreach Division in the UN Department of Public Information (DPI) invites everyone to share their materials. This year, in partnership with DPI, the US Holocaust Museum is preparing a number of educational posters in many languages to share with the UN Information Centres worldwide around the theme "Educating for a Better Future".
