Mitzvah #271 - Never forget Amalek's evil deeds

We are commanded to never forget the evil that Amalek did for us when he ambushed us on our journey from Egypt to the Promised Land.

The Mitzva is to never forget our hatred and animosity towards them.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always.

Verse: "Remember what Amalek did to you... don't forget" (Devarim 25: 17-19)

Source: The Chafetz-Chaim's Sefer haMitzvot haKatzar; Prohibition 194

This ends the
 77 positive and 194 negative
Torah commandments
that are applicable nowadays.
