“Remembering the Past”: International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust

On January 27, events dedicated to the Holocaust Remembrance Day are held all over the world.

This is a day of remembrance for those who died in the terrible events of the war years, this is a day of sorrow and mourning. But also in these days it is important to pass on the days from generation to generation of history, memories of those terrible ones. Our task today is to live, to remember the terrible catastrophe of the first half of the 20th century, in order to prevent the repetition of the events of the past in the future.

The Republican Volunteer Center considers it its duty to hold a meeting, the name of which speaks for itself – “Remembering the Past”. Meetings of this format are held from year to year with RVC volunteers. They are aimed at getting acquainted with the history, the fate of eyewitnesses of those terrible years. Thus, we honor the memory of all those who died during the Holocaust.

“Remembering the Past” is a conversation with a participant in those terrible events, in which we will not talk about genocide, anti-Semitism and Nazism in plain text. It is important for us to hear, to see a Person who survived these events and looked at Life in a different way. It is important for us to live in order to remember!
