The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum marked the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau with a special event at the site on January 27, 2020. The Anniversary Ceremony, which was attended by survivors, their families, heads of state and world leaders, was the central event of the 2020 International Holocaust
Remembrance Day observance across the globe. In 2015, the 70th-anniversary commemoration ceremony was attended by almost 300 Auschwitz Survivors, more than 50 international government delegations, and leaders of international, social and religious organizations. This meaningful event was broadcast live in its entirety by more than 250 television stations from around the world. Data compilation indicates that more than half a billion people viewed the direct transmission, and press accounts of the observances reached 1,752,000,000 readers.
In 2020, the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial Foundation was actively involved in the preparations for the anniversary and in organizing the funding for the participation of survivors and the facilitation of their travel to the ceremony.
