5 Ways You Can Commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27th

International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27th | Goodwill Car Donations

Remember This Dark Day in History

The Holocaust was the systematic murder of Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Second World War. Between 1933 and 1945, Jews were targeted and rounded up in Germany and Nazi-controlled areas in Europe. They were segregated from the rest of the population, sent to labor camps, and eventually slaughtered.

By the end of the war, around six million Jews had been murdered by the Nazi regime in their vicious campaign to purge the entire Jewish community in Europe.

On November 1, 2005, the United Nations proclaimed January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The date marks the anniversary of the liberation of Nazi Germany’s largest concentration and extermination camp in Auschwitz, Poland on January 27, 1945.

During this annual day of commemoration, the U.N. reaffirms its commitment to fight against racism, antisemitism, and other forms of intolerance existing in the world today.

It’s also a day of tribute for those who were murdered during the Holocaust and those who survived. We remember this dark day in history so we can prevent something like this from happening again

Some Folks in Your Community Are in Desperate Need of Help

As we commemorate the tragic events of the Holocaust on January 27th, let us also think about those who are suffering close to our homes. They include the disadvantaged individuals in your community — those who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, job experience, or essential skills, and other limiting personal issues, such as having prison records. These disadvantages trap them in a life of poverty.

Be a ray of hope for the needy in your community by becoming a Goodwill vehicle donor. By teaming up with us at Goodwill Car Donations, you’ll be able to help them turn their lives around.

We will sell your vehicle through an auction, with the proceeds going to the Goodwill organizations serving your area. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofits are dedicated to providing life-changing assistance to disadvantaged Americans, providing them with job training, employment opportunities, scholarships, livelihood assistance, disability benefits, and other critical community-building support services.

We offer you the easiest way to dispose of an unwanted vehicle. Your donation will also entitle you to receive the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season aside from getting a free towing service from us.

However, the best thing about donating to Goodwill is the priceless joy and satisfaction you’ll feel when you see the less fortunate people in your community achieve a better quality of life.

You can donate almost any vehicle type regardless of its age or condition. We can also collect your donation anywhere in the country.
