In 1979, the President’s Commission on the Holocaust recommended annual Days of Remembrance, and in 1980 Congress established the Days of Remembrance as the nation’s annual commemoration of the Holocaust. It also created the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum as a permanent living memorial to the victims. The Days of Remembrance are observed by state and local governments, in schools, in libraries, and increasingly in churches as well as synagogues.
