Memory Chest Memorials is an online memorial website that helps people make connections with friends and family members in the wake of losing a loved one. In addition to providing a much needed support network for people in bereavement, the website gives back to the international community by donating a portion of its proceeds to a variety of respected charities.
Memory Chest Memorials supports causes like the Holocaust Memorial Museum at regular intervals throughout the year. The company invites the public to visit its website on Jan. 27, 2013, and consider joining the effort to provide support to Washington DC’s Holocaust Memorial Museum.
About International Holocaust Remembrance Day:
In 2005 on the 60th anniversary of the liberation of many Nazi concentration camps by allied forces, the United Nations General Assembly established International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The Assembly selected Jan. 27 for International Holocaust Remembrance Day because it marks the anniversary in which the Soviet Army liberated the largest of the Nazi camps—Auschwitz-Birkenau—in 1945.
Created to honor and remember victims of the Holocaust, this noteworthy day also serves to educate future generations about the atrocities that were committed against humanity and to prevent future genocidal acts across the world.
