Virtual Event on the International Holocaust Remembrance Day
January 27 was designated by the UN as the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Usually on this day the Jewish community of Latvia would organize a memorial ceremony at the Bikernieki forest - the biggest Nazi victims mass grave in Latvia.
Of course this year due to pandemics no public event is possible. But this also gives the possibility to somehow broaden the program, so several online sessions are presented, showing different aspects of Holocaust research and commemoration, with the emphasis on less known aspects of WWII in Latvia.
The program will be held in English or with English subtitles and livestreamed to YouTube:
