In 2005, the UN General Assembly designated January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, marking the anniversary of the 1945 liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazis’ largest death camp where one million Jews perished.

This year’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day ceremonies were particularly poignant as Jews and non-Jews around the world came together to mark 75 years since the liberation, joined by a now-dwindling number of Survivors of Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps. 

The Canadian Interfaith Conversation will host a gathering April 1, 1:00-3:00 PM, focused on children’s rights in relation to spiritual development. Introduced by a panel of experts, participants will be invited into dialogue on the role of faith leaders and faith communities in supporting young people to realize their rights, including their right to spiritual development. 

The Gathering will be hosted by the University of Toronto Multi-Faith Centre, located at 569 Spadina Ave, Toronto.
