Day of Remembrance for the Victims of National Socialism

Soviet troops liberated the survivors of the Auschwitz concentration camp on 27 January 1945. Approximately one million people were brutally tortured and murdered because they were discriminated against on the grounds of a racially fanatic ideology or because they resisted against the National Socialists. Ever since Federal President of Germany Roman Herzog established the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of National Socialism in 1996, the University and University and Hanseatic Town of Greifswald have dedicated the 27 January of every year to a particular group of victims. 

Due to the restrictions of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, this year's event was canceled. The town’s Lord Mayor, Dr. Stefan Fassbinder, and the University’s Rector, Prof. Dr. Johanna Weber, commemorate the victims of National Socialism.
