UN To Designate Today, January 27 As Annual Holocaust Day.


    UNITED NATIONS – The U.N. General Assembly on Monday that designated January 27 as an annual commemoration day for the 6 million Jews and other victims murdered in the Nazi Holocaust during World War Two.
    The measure, expected to be approved on Tuesday by consensus, rejects any denial that the Holocaust took place. It also urges members to “inculcate” future generations with the lessons on the genocide so it would not be repeated in the future.
    The General Assembly has often been accused of anti-Semitism and persistent concentration on the plight of Palestinians. The Holocaust was largely ignored until January when the assembly held a session to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the death camps.
    The resolution, first proposed by the United States, Israel, Russia, Australia, and Canada was co-sponsored by nearly 100 nations from every continent.
