International Holocaust Remembrance Day – level 2

01-02-2023 07:00

On January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army freed a concentration camp in Auschwitz, Poland.

The United Nations chose this day as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. On this day, the world remembers people who died during or survived the Holocaust. Six million Jewish people died, and millions of others were victims of Nazism during this time.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned of dangerous groups of people who support neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism, as they believe that white people were better than others. Guterres also said that these groups of people were very dangerous, and in several countries, they were a risk to overall security.

Difficult words: concentration camp (a place where large numbers of people stay and work, and many of them are killed there), victims (a person who is hurt or killed), neo-Nazism (ideas that support Germany’s Nazism), anti-Semitism (a strong dislike of Jewish people).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
