Holocaust survivors and politicians warned Thursday about the resurgence of antisemitism and Holocaust denial as the world remembered Nazi atrocities and commemorated the 77th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many International Holocaust Remembrance Day events were being held online this year again.

Commemorations are taking place amid a rise of antisemitism that gained traction during lock-downs as the pandemic exacerbated hatred online.

Due to the pandemic, many International Holocaust Remembrance Day events were being held online this year again.

A small ceremony, however, was to take place at the site of the former Auschwitz death camp.

A new Polish foundation has been created to distribute grants globally to groups that come up with novel ways to fight indifference to hatred and discrimination.

The Auschwitz Pledge Foundation was announced on Wednesday, on the eve of the 77th anniversary of the liberation, by Soviet forces in 1945, of the World War II Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland.

The goal of the Warsaw-based group is to support innovative projects that fight indifference to hatred in societies, based on the idea that it can lead to violence and even genocide.
