Public Reading of the Names of Holocaust Victims
event type: Community
místo: Moravské nám.

Holocaust and Heroism Day, in Hebrew "Yom ha-Shoah ve ha-gvura" (יום הזיכרון לשואה ולגבורה) is a day when we commemorate the victims of the Holocaust through memorial services. Its date was set following the beginning of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising on 14 Nisan/19 April 1943. The fundamental motive of the event is to link historical consciousness with current events in society, to draw attention to the state of respect for human rights and to prevent manifestations of anti-Semitism and racism. Come and join the marathon public reading of names of the victims, which will take place simultaneously in many other places in the Czech Republic. The event is organized by the Jewish Community of Brno.
