Candles lit for the Day of Remembrance in Naples
Article contents

On the occasion of the 2018 Remembrance Day in Naples there will be a rich program of events, shows and exhibitions.

On the occasion of 2018 Memorial Day, also the city of Naples will participate in the commemoration of the victims of the Shoah, organizing initiatives and events in different cultural places.

It is a moment of reflection and of I remember on one of the saddest and most atrocious pages in the history of mankind that the 27 January is remembered every year. Our city, however, always proposes a series of events that involve almost the whole week of the 27 January between exhibitions, shows, meetings and events that help us remember the victims of the Holocaust.

In addition, the annual recurrence is essential to sensitize the population on the importance of an event that marked the 900s and that must never be repeated.
