On Nov. 11, Canadians will gather at cenotaphs, schools, churches, synagogues and other public places to mark the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers in armed conflicts around the world.

To make the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II even more significant, March of the Living Canada (MOL) is asking schools taking part in Remembrance Day activities to add the video of a unique peace song to their memorials – Lay Down Your Arms.

Written by a wounded Israeli veteran of the Yom Kippur War to honour his fallen comrades, with lyrics by a Canadian songwriter and a bridge by a local musician, the song “has Canadian content and a universal message,” said MOL national director Eli Rubenstein.

Auschwitz Museum celebrating 70th anniversary of liberation with YouTube livestream

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, when Soviet troops marched into the Nazi death camp and freed its remaining survivors. By January 1945, the Nazi war machine had killed more than 1 million prisoners at the site, most of whom were Jews. The day has since become International Holocaust Remembrance Day, and the Auschwitz Museum holds a remembrance every year at the camp’s Death Gate to commemorate the liberation and those lost in the war. This year, YouTube is also helping to mark the end of the Holocaust by livestreaming the event online.

Google has already worked extensively with the Auschwitz Museum, digitizing images and records from the site along uploading media to make for an online museum. Today serves as an extension of those efforts, especially at a time when the number of the camp’s remaining survivors continues to fall. You can watch the ceremonies right now in the embed above.
