Canadian Cemetery: Holocaust Memorial Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked on 27th of January. On that day in 1945 the Red Army liberated Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland.

Following the ancient Hebrew tradition, relatives and friends put remembrance stones on Jewish graves at war memorials in Normandy.  Here, a few photos from the Canadian war cemetery near Courseulles-sur-Mer.
