THE HELLENIC PARLIAMENT ILLUMINATED FOR THE WE REMEMBER CAMPAIGN ON HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY 2022 Print E-mail
Thursday, 27 January 2022 19:38

 On the 27th of January 2022, the Hellenic Parliament participated in the international campaign #WeRemember of the WJC, by displaying on the facade of the Parliament’s building a message for the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

In this symbolic way, the Hellenic Parliament stated its clear stance against anti-Semitism, as well as its commitment to preserve the Memory of the Holocaust victims, as a universal message against intolerance and antisemitism. In 2004 the Hellenic Parliament legislated, with a unanimous vote, the «National Remembrance Day for the Greek Jews Martyrs and Heroes of the Holocaust».

The illumination of the building was made possible thanks to the decision taken by the President of the Parliament, Mr. Konstantinos Tasoulas, and the coordinated actions of his office and the technical department of the Parliament. 

The graphic design that was projected on the Parliament -apart from the We Remember logo- was illustrated with characteristic symbols of the Holocaust, such as the barbed wire, a hand tattooed with the inmate’s camp number, and the Star of David with which 6.000.000 Jews –amongst whom 67.000 Greek Jews- were singled out, marked, deported, tortured by the Nazis and their collaborators, and ultimately were brutally murdered in the German concentration and extermination camps.
