World Remembers Holocaust 67 Years After Auschwitz Freed

On Jan. 27, 1945, Soviet troops liberated Auschwitz — a sprawling complex containing 48 labor and extermination camps where more than 1 million people were killed during the Holocaust.

In 2005, the U.N. Security Council designated Jan. 27 an international day of remembering the Holocaust’s millions of victims. View some of the events and memorials in our slide show above.
