The illumination of the imposing façade of the City Hall of Athens with the logo of the WJC #WE REMEMBER campaign, began in the evening of January 26, 2022. The illumination will continue tomorrow, on the 27th of January 2022, as a tribute to the International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the National Remembrance Day for the Greek Jews Martyrs and Heroes of the Holocaust.

The Municipality of Athens participates for the first time in #WE REMEMBER with this symbolic action of raising social awareness, for the implementation of which the Mayor of Athens Kostas Bakoyiannis and the staff of his office were immediately mobilized, in spite of adversities caused by the extreme weather conditions that afflicted Athens. The city of Athens remembers the darkness of the Holocaust of the 6.000.000 Jews and “lights up” the future with the values of democracy and humanism. This is the dynamic message transmitted by the City Hall of Athens.

The Hellenic Parliament will also participate in this year’s #WE REMEMBER campaign with the illumination of its building, which will take place in the evening of the 27th of January 2022.
