“Canada will not forget the unimaginable horror that Holocaust victims and survivors endured. We remain driven to ensure history does not repeat itself. We will never accept the normalization of hate and will continue to work with our global partners to combat antisemitism.”

Rachel Bendayan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade

“Canada

Canada remembers and honours the more than 6 million Jewish people who were systematically murdered by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust. We honour the survivors, those who stood against the horrors of the Holocaust and countless others who suffered unimaginable hardship and loss.

On Sunday, Canada recommitted to the principles of the Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust and supported the adoption of the 2020 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Ministerial Declaration. The Government of Canada was represented by Rachel Bendayan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade.

Canada adopted the declaration along with 34 International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) member countries at the IHRA Ministerial Meeting in Brussels, Belgium. This event marks the beginning of a year-long acknowledgement and commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camps.

At a time of rising antisemitism in Canada and around the world, education and remembrance of the horrors of the Holocaust are more important than ever. To do so, Canada is continuing its work to combat antisemitism with a $45 million investment in an anti-racism strategy announced by the government last year.
