On January 27, 2023, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador issued a statement recognizing January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The significance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day is salient in the battle against hateful prejudice as the reports indicate a rise in racism and anti-Semitic behaviour, such as holocaust denial, coupled with hate crimes, occurring throughout Canada. The Provincial Government stands in solidarity with Jewish friends and neighbours and strongly condemns anti-Semitism. The province recognizes the indelible contributions of Jews to Newfoundland and Labrador while striving for understanding between all members of this community.
