Honoring Holocaust Remembrance Day around Puget Sound

From a free concert to a documentary screening to books that teach

Published on: January 27, 2015

January 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a day that was named by the United Nations General Assembly in 2005 (the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau) to remember and commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and what they suffered. An estimated 6 million Jews, one million gypsies, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexual men were killed by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

Below are several events around Seattle that can help families honor and learn about Holocaust Remembrance Day together, from a free concert at Benaroya Hall to a screening of a documentary at the Museum of Flight.
