INTERNATIONAL HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY

     On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, activists of the Association for Social Research and Communication (UDIK) will attend the commemoration organized by Jewish Community in Sarajevo. The commemorative ceremony will be held out on Friday, January 27, 2017 in the Jewish Community Center in Sarajevo at 10.30 am.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is an international memorial day on 27 January which marks the anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp Auschwitz – Birkenau by Soviet troops in 1945. In the period between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis and their collaborators across Europe persecuted millions of people. They treated them extremely inhuman, deprived them of dignity and finally killed. In 2005, United Nations General Assembly adopted a formal resolution on the commemoration of this day. The resolution calls on all UN member states to honor the memory of Holocaust victims. Moreover, this resolution encourages the development of educational programs, which aims to show the determination to help prevent genocide in the future.

UDIK believes that this resolution is a good example which should lead society in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and apply it to our community and thus prevent a repetition of our tragic past. Also, UDIK believes that until we are not sufficiently prepared to commemorate the crimes relating to our recent past, we shouldn’t show the hypocrisy to commemorate exclusively international dates.
