Date: January 27th 2016

On January 27 (Wednesday) in Thailand a ceremony commemorating the United Nations International Holocaust Memorial Day was organized at UNCC, United Nations Building by the Embassy of Israel and United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).
Our NPO Chairman, Chihiro Sugihara, delivered a speech there, as was the case last time.
70 years have passed since the Holocaust ended, and this year, introducing a theme (The Holocaust and Human Dignitya), a video presentation about Anne Frank was held.
In his speech Sugihara spoke about the bravery of both Chiune Sugihara, whose humanism resulted in saving the lives of about 6000 Jewish refugees, and Anne Frank who never lost hope until the very end.
On January 27, 1945 Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated by Soviet troops. The United Nations Organization has designated that day for annual Holocaust memorial ceremonies to be held internationally in order to prevent hatred, racial discrimination and prejudice from causing similar tragedies ever again.
