The Israeli and German Embassies partnered to commemorate the International Holocaust Remembrance Day by holding a screening of the documentary film entitled, “Muranów”.

“Muranów” tells the story of the neighborhood of the same name, a once vibrant and flourishing community of Jewish life that was eventually turned into the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. The documentary brings to focus the current residents of the neighborhood, who are being haunted by Muranów’s dark past, and its ghosts who serve as a metaphor for the life, culture, and memories of the Jewish people who were systematically killed under the Nazi regime.

“The Holocaust was an unprecedented genocide, perpetrated by Nazi Germany. Six million Jews – one third of the Jewish population – were murdered just because they were Jewish. Today, we are witnessing voices of denial of the holocaust and increasing antisemitism. This cannot be ignored; we can never let it happen again,” Israeli Ambassador Ilan Fluss said in his remarks. “That is why it is important that the United Nations designated January 27 as an annual International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust,” he added.

“I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks to the German Embassy headed by Ambassador Anke Reiffenstuel for working together with us to make this intimate film screening happen. I believe that this joint event brings a very strong message,” Ambassador Fluss expressed.

“After the darkest days in German history, today Germany remains committed to and lives up to its international responsibility to prevent the resurgence of dictatorial regimes that violate human rights and destroy human lives,” Ambassador Reiffenstuel says, highlighting that: “This annual commemorative day was introduced upon the initiative of German Federal President Roman Herzog on January 27th, 1996.“

Both embassies thank all the members of like-minded embassies and organizations who graced the event, especially UN Senior Human Rights Adviser Signe Poulsen.
