UN International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2017
The commemoration, organised by the Jewish Holocaust Centre and the Jewish Community Council of Victoria, accords with the UN General Assembly 2005 resolution proclaiming 27 January, the day in 1945 on which Auschwitz was liberated, as the annual international Holocaust Remembrance Day.

A new display at the Australian War Memorial pays homage to victims of the Holocaust and honours thousands of survivors who made Australia their home after the end of World War II.
A new permanent display has been launched at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra to pay tribute to victims of the Holocaust.
While marking the deaths of six million Jews, the exhibit also includes stories of the thousands of survivors that made new homes in Australia after the end of World War II.
Developed by the Australian War Memorial and the Jewish Holocaust Centre, the exhibit expands on the small number of relics previously on display.
