Day of Remembrance for all Victims of Chemical Warfare is a UN event which is annually observed on 30th November. This day is being organized as a tribute to victims of the chemical warfare.

It is held to remember the victims of chemical warfare and to affirm the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons commitment to the cause. This day aims to eliminate chemical weapons from our world.

This day aims to educate the general public about the devastating effects of chemical weapons so that awareness regarding it can be raised throughout the world so that people can be more careful towards chemicals.

Chemical weapons were first invented in 1918 by a German chemist named Fritz Haber. He is best known for inventing the Haber-Bosch process that synthesizes ammonia from nitrogen gas and hydrogen gas, which aids in synthesizing fertilizers.

Day of Remembrance for All Victims of Chemical Warfare memorializes those who have lost their lives to chemical warfare. It is a day to mourn and honour the lost lives, whether they of soldiers or civilians.

This invention is used in global food production and supports nearly half of the world's population. However, this isn't  Haber's only life-changing invention.

The Germans first used their chemical weapons in Belgium in 1915 at the Second Battle of Ypres, releasing 168 tons of chlorine gas. From then on, Haber and his team continued to experiment and further developed their chemicals to make them more effective.

Public awareness is raised about the dangers of these weapons of mass destruction and what can be done to establish peace.
