For International Holocaust Remembrance Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is commemorated annually on January 27, which marks the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945. Yom HaShoah, on the other hand, is commemorated on the 27th of Nisan, this year falling on April 19.

Christina Malman's powerful black-and-white cover for The New Yorker is perhaps the last thing one would expect to see on a mainstream magazine cover dating from 1940.
