Today, on January 27, 2021, the film “Auschwitz”, dedicated to the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust, is scheduled to be shown at the RCSC in Kathmandu.
Despite the fact that the ban on mass events imposed by the Government of Nepal at the end of March has not yet been lifted, provided that all safety rules for the health of visitors are observed, the film screening will take place.
Let us recall that the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust was established by the UN General Assembly on November 1, 2005 (Resolution No. 60/7). The adoption of the document was initiated by Israel, Canada, Australia, Russia, Ukraine, the United States, and more than 90 states were their co-authors. The date of January 27 was chosen because on that day, Soviet troops liberated the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
The team of the RCSC in Nepal express its most sincere condolences over the destruction of people just because they belong to different ethnic and social groups.
