International Holocaust Remembrance Day

The International Holocaust Remembrance Day took place on January 27, 2020.  You may have heard of the term “Holocaust” from your history class, or in any document or documentary.  In fact, this event dates way back, when Adolf Hitler was still alive.  The goal of the Germans before was to remove people that were considered “alien,” such as Jews in particular.  Throughout the entire era, about six million Jews were killed, due to starvation, or the “concentration camps” that did not provide the necessities for one to live. (credits to dosomething.org)  Years later (1953), the government gave individual payments to the Jews, as a way of showing that they are deeply apologizing to what had happened.  For more information, there is a museum dedicated to the holocaust in Los Angeles, or LAMOTH.
