The date marks the anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau by Soviet troops on 27 January 1945. It was officially proclaimed, in november 2005, International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust by the United Nations General Assembly. The Holocaust profoundly affected countries in which Nazi crimes were perpetrated, but also had universal implications and consequences in many other parts of the world. Member States share a collective responsibility for addressing the residual trauma, maintaining effective remembrance policies, caring for historic sites, and promoting education, documentation and research, seven decades after the genocide. This responsibility entails educating about the causes, consequences and dynamics of such crimes so as to strengthen the resilience of young people against ideologies of hatred. As genocide and atrocity crimes keep occurring across several regions, and as we are witnessing a global rise of anti-Semitism and hateful discourses, this has never been so relevant. </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="paragraphs-items paragraphs-items-field-comm-body paragraphs-items-field-comm-body-full paragraphs-items-full"> <div class="field field-name-field-comm-body field-type-paragraphs field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> <div id="content--51931" class="entity entity-paragraphs-item paragraphs-item-paragraph-text"> <div class="content"> <h2 class="title">2021 COMMEMORATIONS</h2> <div class="field field-name-field-body field-type-text-long field-label-hidden"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"> For the first time, the United Nations and UNESCO will jointly organize a series of events, in partnership with the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, to mark the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi German concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. Due to restrictions put in place because of COVID-19, and to reach global audiences, the events will be entirely online. Events will include a commemoration ceremony on 27 January 2021 and a panel discussion on Holocaust denial and distortion, broadcast by UNTV and CNN, in addition to   exhibitions in Paris and UNESCO Field Offices around the world. - UNESCO Website </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>

TOURS OF Paris

Tours

Eiffel Tower Guided Climb

Rating

The Eiffel Tower Guided Climb gives you the opportunity to climb the Eiffel Tower with a guide who will share with you the history of the tower and point out the surrounding sites as you get to the top. You won't have to wait in the long elevator line and you will definitely get a good chunk of your daily steps in. There may be a line for the stairs, but this is still much shorter than the elevator line.  Your guide knows the 704 step climb isn't easy and has prepared several stops along the way to share fascinating stories and legends about the world's most visited landmark. During the first section of the clumb, you will learn about Gustave Eiffel, the young engineer, entrepreneur, and builder of the magnificent tower.  If you're worried about bringing kids on this tour, many people who reviewed this tour said it wasn't a problem and their kids loved it. Because of the breaks between levels, the climb isn't as daunting as it sounds. On the second level is where you feel a real sense of accomplishment. You can gaze out at the breathtaking views and enjoy the birdseye tour of the entire city. Your guide will tell you about the districts and monuments such as Les Invalides, Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, Montparnasse, and Champs-Elysees. This tour is a once in a lifetime experience that will leave you with a sense of accomplishment, insight on the tower's history, and many wonderful photos to show friends and family when you get home.

Paris Charms & Secrets

Rating

Paris is a city filled with rich history and culture, but there are so many hidden facts to some of the city's top attractions and stories behind almost every corner. The big Saint-Sulpice Church, for example, was once a hayloft, and the building where the president works, the Elysse Palace, was once a gambling house. Thanks to the research made by the team at Paris Charms & Secrets, hundreds of strange and personal stories that were hidden somewhere in old books and documents, have been brought to life again. Did you know that there is a link between Al Capone and the Eiffel Tower? Or that the Eiffel tower had a younger sister? Paris is a mysterious city and on this tour, you will learn some of the top mysteries and the stories surrounding them. When you take a tour of the Louvre, you might hear a few details about the architecture, but at Paris Charms & Secrest, you will hear a story about the museum's greatest scandal. The goal of this tour is to provide you with the lesser known, hidden stories and details, that you won't find anywhere else.  This tour is done on an electric bike because you travel more than 20 km and this is an effortless way to cover as much of the city as possible in four hours. There is no other tour that travels this way, but it's perfect for staying out of traffic, entering protected areas, keeping the group at the same speed, and being able to enjoy some fresh air. By now you've read a few of the hidden facts that the historians at Paris Charm's & Secrets dug out for you, but there are plenty more stories waiting to be told. If you want a fascinating, slightly unconventional tour that takes you to the places less traveled and tells you the hidden secrets of Paris, this tour is for you.
