We Remember - Join the international #WeRemember campaign

For the fifth year in a row, Crif has joined forces with the World Jewish Congress for the #WeRemember campaign, which aims to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust around the world.

On January 27th, we remember the 76th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. And we need your help in keeping this memory alive.

It is crucial, now more than ever before, to educate against hate and against denial around the world. So that the memory of the survivors remains part of our greater collective memory.

However, alongside the duty to remember comes the duty to act. And this duty concerns us all.

World-wide, antisemitism is on the rise. We promised, 76 years ago, never to forget. Yet, the current climate and the increase of attacks on Jewish citizens across Europe speaks in our disfavour. We are currently at the crossroads of a fading memory and the rise of xenophobic, hateful, antisemitic sentiment. Now is the moment to reaffirm our pledge never to forget.

We encourage participants to voice their support on social media, sharing pictures of themselves holding “We Remember” signs, and using the hashtag #WeRemember.

Through this online campaign, we hope to reach people around the globe, to educate, to honour both the survivors and those we lost, and to keep the memory alive.

Only together can we ensure that “never again” truly means never again.


Take your photo with the message "We Remember" and post it on Facebook, Twitter and / or Instagram with the hashtag #WeRemember.
