International Holocaust Remembrance Day


On the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we commemorate 6 million innocent victims. On this date, the Slovak National Museum - Museum of Jewish Culture - Sereď Holocaust Museum will present a publication entitled The Holocaust in Slovakia/Testimonies From Sereď, produced by specialists from the Sereď Holocaust Museum and the Central Union of Jewish Religious Communities in the Slovak Republic. The publication will include supplementary teaching texts and guidelines for teachers and students. The publication's key benefit is the fact that it will provide teachers guidelines they can use in the classroom. We are confident that it will significantly contribute to the awareness and education of both young people and the general public regarding the Holocaust and human rights.

The presentation of the publication will be followed by the opening of a photo exhibition entitled "Five Years of the Sereď Holocaust Museum", which explores this institution's activities since it opened. On this occasion, we will also issue a commemorative euro banknote. The event will be streamed on-line.
