On January 27, we pay our respect to victims of the Holocaust. Our remembrance also includes understanding about the causes, consequences and dynamics of such offences. With time, we must improve the resistance of young people towards hateful propaganda. Also, we celebrate the efforts of Motherhood. World Breast Pumping Day recognise the effort of pumping and stigma with it. Let us dive in to know more.
International Holocaust Remembrance Day
UNESCO pays homage to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust every year about January 27. This day reaffirms its unwavering dedication to fighting antisemitism, racism and other manifestations of bigotry. This day remembers the violence and harsh effects of fascism. It also recalls the lives lost in the barbaric genocide.
United Nations General Assembly officially proclaimed, in November 2005, International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. The day marks the anniversary of the liberation by Soviet forces of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp on 27 January 1945.
How To Celebrate?
On January 21, 2021, the celebrations will include a memorial ceremony. UNTV and CNN hold panel debate, broadcasts live, on Antisemitism and misinformation. The events will be entirely online due to limitations set in place because of COVID-19, and to reach worldwide viewers. Exhibitions are also conducted around the world in Paris and in the UNESCO Field Offices. Link is here.
World Breast Pumping Day
On January 27, we celebrate an important tool for today’s mothers. While we celebrate motherhood, it is difficult to manage a sudden lifestyle change. World Breast Pumping Day gives us the chance to celebrate different feeding choices women make. It’s an opportunity for moms of all walks of life, parenting styles, and communities to stand together and support each other.
Pumping is an experience that is very different from nursing. Nursing is natural, pumping is electrical. And any mom who has ever pumped can relate to it. Pumping needs a great deal of preparation, logistics, and materials. Still, you need more preparation, logistics, and materials to pump at work. Therefore, it is worth celebrating a day for those who put the effort into the pump.
How To Celebrate?
It also provides one the ability to normalize multiple options about feeding. Also, as we learn of breastfeeding, combo feeding, additional nursing programs. The more we feed our babies, the more we normalize the actual motherhood struggles and joys. Also, now more culture adapts to help provide the services we need to sustain our growing families.
