The event that led to the thorough destruction of things and killings of millions of people during World War II remains one of the saddest events in human history that can never be forgotten. Seventy-five years after the end of the Holocaust, the United Nations Department of Global Communications marks the year 2020 Holocaust Remembrance Day.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the remembrance of the holocaust that led to the mass slaughter of people leaving families devastated, children became orphans suddenly, men and women lost spouses and some their children. Those whose family members did not die in the holocaust lost touch with them permanently for several years and some forever.
Holocaust Day Remembrance is a special day for the commemoration in memory of the millions of victims of this great massacre but the day serves more than this particular purpose as it is also a day for the world to learn great lessons from the event. This day promotes and propagates Holocaust education that has become a vital part of several academic institutions today as it continues to teach lessons learnt from World War II and the need for peace in our world.
Peace and Conflict Resolution Resource Centre (PEACrEc) on this Holocaust Remembrance Day celebrates the United Nations as the ending of the Holocaust also marks her establishment. We appreciate the efforts of the United Nations in bringing nations of the world together to speak one voice that has brought stability to the world. PEACrEc, therefore, uses this opportunity to urge nations of the world to imbibe security communications as the means to achieve peace and shun war.
