27/01: International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2018

 

 

“The Holocaust, which established the standard for absolute evil, is the universal heritage of all civilized people.”

– Our Living Legacy, The Survivors’ Declaration

Since 2005, 27th of January is designated to International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Every year on that day, the UN holds ceremonies to mark the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau by the Red Army (27/01/1945).

To honour the memory of the 6 million Jewish victims and 11 million of other victims of Nazis, Sweek decided to launch a writing project “Never Again!”. Sweek writers have written many touching stories in the past few weeks to raise awareness of this cruel genocide. We Remember. 

Write your own story and tag it with #neveragain to contribute to this initiative. The best ones might be featured.

Check the “Never Again!” Holocaust collection on Sweek with stories, poems and plays written by Sweek writers and our brand ambassadors.

    It was a powerful initiative indeed, not only for the readers, but also for the writers.

    It was an honor to be a part of this project, to memorialize those who were lost. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to work alongside so many brilliant and talented writers to bring to light such a sensitive- but important- topic. And to all the Sweekers that suported us- and the wonderful Sweek Team themselves- thank you!
