Holocaust Memorial Day January 28th, 2013

Holocaust Memorial Day

On January 27, 1945, Soviet forces liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp, which today, has become a symbol of the Holocaust, representing the depths of man’s inhumanity to man.


The 2013 observance of the International Day of Commemoration is in memory of the victims of the Holocaust built around the theme “Rescue during the Holocaust: The Courage to Care”.


It has been both an honour and a privilege for our team to have produced the digital edition of “The Dairy of a Young Girl” in partnership with Viking, Penguin and The Anne Frank Foundation.


It was our desire to reflect the theme of this year’s commemoration, and while Anne was never rescued, she cared greatly about those around her with a similar desire to end both persecution and discrimination. To that end, we sincerely hope that this seminal work provides the reader with an insight that not only goes BeyondtheStory, but pays tribute to Anne’s story.
