BRUSSELS (EJP)—In the framework of this week’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the European Jewish Community Centre and other European Jewish organizations take part in an exhibition about the Shoah displayed at the European Parliament in Brussels.

The exhibition, featuring videos, testimonies and footages, is open to the public from January 23-25 from 9 am to 5 pm at the lobby of the Spinelli building.

In November 2005, the United Nations General Assembly decided to designate January 27 as International Holocaust Day.

This event coincides with the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp which took place on January 27th, 1945 signaling an end to the campaign of systematic murder which saw the extermination of over 6 million Jews and millions of other innocent citizens of Europe.

On Sunday, at the initiative of the European Friends of Israel (EFI), a delegation of some 20 members of the European Parliament and of EU national parliaments will visit the former Auschwitz Nazi death camp in southern Poland.
