Mousey Monday – International Holocaust Remembrance Day

mouseymondays

Happy Mousey Monday to our Cache and Cookies readers!  Today in 1996, 18 years ago, Germany first observed International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The day is for the memory of victims of the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the mass murder of millions of Jews during World War II by Nazi Germany, led by Adolf Hitler. January 27 was chosen as the date of observance because it was in 1945, on this day, that the largest Nazi death camp was liberated by Soviet troops.
