Cultural Observances and Awareness Events: Days of Remembrance & Holocaust Remembrance Day 2022

Special Observances 2022: Home

Theme - Determination, Hope, & Honor

The U.S. Congress established Days of Remembrance as the nation's annual commemoration of the Holocaust.

Public Law 96-388 established the United States Holocaust Memorial Council and authorizes the actions of the council. Each year the President of the United States also issues a Presidential Proclamation for the observance.

The dates for Days of Remembrance and Holocaust Remembrance Day vary each year according to the Hebrew calendar.  This year, Days of Remembrance, the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust, will be observed from April 24 – May 1, 2022. Remembrance Day is Thursday, April 28, 2022. This is observed each year during the week of remembrance that runs from the Sunday before Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom Hashoah) through the following Sunday.

This year's theme is Determination, Hope, and Honor and links to a quote by Tibor "Teddy" Rubin, a Holocaust Survivor.  The LRC owns a copy of Teddy's biography, Single Handed: The Inspiring True Story of Tibor "Teddy" Rubin, Holocaust Survivor, Korean War Hero, and Medal of Honor Recipient. 

Below is a sampling of LRC books in support of Days of Remembrance and Holocaust Remembrance Day, including Teddy's biography.  These books are either available in the LRC or can be accessed online as eBooks through our EBSCOhost eBook Collection database subscription (login credentials are posted on Blackboard or see LRC staff).
