Observance Holocaust Remembrance Day

This month will mark Observance Holocaust Remembrance Day in 2011, focusing on the heroic women of the war, Women and the Holocaust: Courage and Compassion.

"Jewish women performed truly heroic deeds during the Holocaust. They faced unthinkable peril and upheaval -- traditions upended, spouses sent to the death camps, they themselves torn from their roles as caregivers and pushed into the workforce, there to be humiliated and abused.

In the face of danger and atrocity, they bravely joined the resistance, smuggled food into the ghettos and made wrenching sacrifices to keep their children alive. Their courage and compassion continue to inspire us to this day," says UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

There are a number of events on, including exhibitions and films to mark Observance Holocaust Remembrance Day in 2011.
