On 27 January 2021, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp, the UN Chamber Music Society of the United Nations Staff Recreation Council (UNCMS) will perform a virtual concert in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.

The Holocaust was a turning point in history, which prompted the world to say "never again". The classical music programme will feature Jewish composers, to instill the memory of the tragedy in future generations to prevent genocide from occurring again. Founded in 2016, the UN Chamber Music Society carries out the United Nations’ mission of peace, understanding and cooperation, through the universal language of music. All musicians will perform chamber ensemble music from the safety of their homes, to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.
