International Holocaust Remembrance Day is the annual day of remembrance held on January 27 dedicated to the six million victims of the Jewish Holocaust, in addition to anyone else negatively affected by the actions of the National Socialists. 17 million people were murdered by Adolf Hitler and his totalitarian regime. Tens of millions of lives were also destroyed either physically or psychologically.

Sometimes, governments refuse to properly emphasize the Jewish identity of the six million fatalities. For example, in Canada, the Liberal Administration of Justin Trudeau has done this on multiple occasions, thus shunning the Jewish people. On the other hand, in 2018, President Donald Trump stated, "We take this opportunity to recall the Nazis' systematic persecution and brutal murder of six million Jewish people." In 2019, Trump recalled that, "The Third Reich, and its collaborators, pursued the complete elimination of the entire Jewish people. Six million Jews were systematically slaughtered in horrific ways." This day is used to commemorate the genocide of the Holocaust, as well as the long history of anti-Semitism and its contemporary manifestations (such as Holocaust denial and anti-Zionism).
