World leaders are touching down in Israel this week to mark 75 years since the Red Army liberated Auschwitz, the extermination camp where the Nazis murdered over a million Jews.

Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin and the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and museum are hosting the Fifth World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem on Thursday.
This year’s event, titled, “Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting anti-Semitism,” is set to be one of the most important events ever organized by Israel, with more than 40 leaders due to land in Tel Aviv before attending Thursday`s somber commemoration at Yad Vashem.
