Giorno della Memoria: Twenty Years of Remembrance in Italy



Giorno della Memoria: Twenty Years of Remembrance in Italy

Join us for the ceremony of the reading of the names of the Jews deported from Italy and the Italian territories.

Twenty-four years have passed since the establishment of January 27th in Germany as day of commemoration of the victims of Nazi-Fascism which would subsequently be adopted as first shared European commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance.

The designation of January 27th as International Holocaust Remembrance Day occurred over time, spearheaded by the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance and Research and some of the countries where Nazi-Fascist totalitarianism came forth: Germany in 1996, France 1997, Italy 2000, followed by many other countries in Europe. It assumed an international dimension in 2005 when the United Nations officially marked an annual commemoration establishing their Holocaust Education Program.
