27 January 2015 is Holocaust Memorial Day. It also marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau - the infamous Nazi death camp. Russian troops liberated the camp on this day in 1945.

2015 also sees the 20th anniversary of the Genocide in Srebrenica, Bosnia.

In a year of anniversaries, it's also 50 years after Nostra Aetate - the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions.

All are encouraged to participate in local events to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
