International Holocaust Remembrance Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day – 27 January, marks the liberation of the German concentration camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. The date was designated by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005 to honour the memory of the Jews murdered during the Second World War and is celebrated all over the world.

The IPN has been researching the history of the Holocaust and Polish-Jewish relations for many years. Its catalogue of scientific publications for the years 2000–2023 "Terror, Holocaust, Persecution. The Jewish Community under the Rule of the German and Soviet Totalitarianism in Polish Territories during 19391945 includes several dozen titles.

We would also like to recommend visiting the Institute's educational website truthaboutcamps.eu providing more information on the extermination and concentration camps established and operated by the Germans in occupied Poland.  The site also features the list of the SS personell of KL Auschwitz: https://truthaboutcamps.eu/th/form/60,Zaloga-SS-KL-Auschwitz.html

More materials on the Holocaust can be found in the Collected Content: the Holocaust in Occupied Poland  and Collected Content:The Image of Treblinka in the Eyes of Samuel Willenberg educational Project.
