Regardless of the exact date, the Holocaust is something that we must not forget, and always strive to never repeat again. The events of the Holocaust are painful to remember but it is important that no matter what the date, we are honoring those who lost their lives. The Nazi's murdered more than 6 million Jewish people and those who tried to help them. The Holocaust is not just limited to those who lost their lives, but the millions of others who were also victims and witnesses to the horror of what took place.
