Ioannina Celebrates Day of Remembrance for Jewish Holocaust Victims

The Prefecture of Epirus, in cooperation with the Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Ioannina and the local Israeli Community, is organizing a commemorative event for the “Day of Remembrance for the Greek-Jewish Holocaust Victims and Heroes” on Saturday, February 28.
The 27th of January has been established by the European Parliament as the Day of Remembrance for Victims of Nazism, and on this occasion, the town of Ioannina will pay tribute to the millions of Jewish people that lost their lives in the Nazi concentration camps, and especially, to the 2000 Jews of Ioannina that never returned back to their homes.
The event will take place at the “V. Pyrsinellas” venue of the Cultural Centre of the Municipality of Ioannina. The event’s programme includes greetings, a lecture by author N. Daveta, the performance of Mikis Theodorakis’-Iakovos Kambanellis’ work “Mauthausen” by the Municipality’s philharmonic orchestra, and the screening of Alain Resnais’ documentary film “Night and Fog”.
