DEOMI releases 2014 Holocaust National Days of Remembrance poster

Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute

PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – In observance of the Holocaust Days of Remembrance, observed each year during the week of Remembrance that runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) through the following Sunday, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute (DEOMI), proudly announces original artwork available for download from DEOMI’s public website, www.deomi.org.

This year, the Holocaust Days of Remembrance week will be observed from April 27 – May 4, 2014. Holocaust Remembrance Day is Monday, April 28, 2014. The United States Congress established the Days of Remembrance as our nation’s annual commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust and created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, http://www.ushmm.org, as a permanent, living memorial to those victims. The Museum designated “Confronting the Holocaust: American Responses” as the theme for the 2014 observance.

Please visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s website at the following link to read an essay describing the theme for this month’s observance which is supported by the design of DEOMI’s poster. http://www.ushmm.org/m/pdfs/20140101-dor-2014-theme-essay.pdf

In accordance with its congressional mandate, the museum is responsible for leading the nation in commemorating the Days of Remembrance, and for encouraging and sponsoring appropriate observances throughout the United States.

Remembrance not only obligates us to memorialize those who were killed during the Holocaust, but also reminds us of the fragility of democracy and the need for citizens to be vigilant in the protection of democratic ideals. We remember because we recognize the importance of preserving freedom, promoting human dignity, and confronting hate whenever and wherever it occurs.
