On behalf of the National Holocaust Monument Committee (NHMC), we are pleased to invite you to attend The International Holocaust Remembrance Day Commemoration to be held outdoors at The National Holocaust Monument, Ottawa, on Friday January 26, 2024 from 11:00-11:45am EST.

This official commemoration will invite all Canadians to take a moment to reflect on the past, and to mark this day as a day of not only remembrance but continued action to eradicate antisemitism in each of our communities.

A number of Federal and Municipal Buildings will be illuminated throughout The National Capital Commission on this day and will also be live streamed on Facebook as part of a national commemoration. “We Remember” is also a national social media campaign.

We are also happy to share with you that Ms Deborah Lyons, Canada’s Special Envoy on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism, will be our keynote speaker.

We look forward to welcoming you to the International Holocaust Remembrance Day Ceremony.
