I LOVE PU: January 27th – International Holocaust Remembrance Day (Rubrica Pu24 in lingua inglese)


26 gennaio 2016

L’Olocausto è una pagina del libro dell’Umanità da cui non dovremo mai togliere il segnalibro della memoria. (Primo Levi).

Italian Jewish writer Primo Levi who spent 11 months at Monowitz –  one of the three main camps in the Auschwitz concentration camp complex – wrote that we shall never remove the bookmark from the Holocaust page in the Book of Human History.

This is why Jan. 27th was designated by the United Nations as ‘International Holocaust Remembrance Day’ in 2005 (being Jan. 27th 1945 the date when Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, was liberated by the Soviet troops).

To never forget.

As I fear my words may sound totally inadequate, today I would just like to post a few pictures of the old Jewish Ghetto,the Sephardi Synagogue and the old Jewish cemetery in Pesaro.

That is my humble contribution to ‘International Holocaust Remembrance Day’.

In memoriam
