Reception on Monday, May 8th at 7 pm
8th- 9th Of May Time of Remembrance and Reconciliation for Those Who Lost Their Lives During WWII.
Exhibition supported by The Ministry of Culture of Republic of Macedonia.
To commemorate the Day Against Fascism, the NGO Acta Non Verba presents an exhibition and book promotion of never before seen documents and photographs as well as testimonies of Jewish people rescued during the WWII.
Over 70 years have passed since the end of World War II, but the legacy left by the war continues to play an important role in Europe’s collective memory and identity. It is a cataclysmic event that left a deep impact on our lives and we should never let it happen again. World War II is one of the most tragic events for all humankind.
In that difficult time, those who had little chance to escape had to look for alternatives pathways. This would not have been achieved, without the help of humane and courageous people, who sacrificed themselves to save another’s life.
When we remember the Holocaust and the lives we lost, it is also important to remember the rescuers. These were the people who risked not only their own lives, sometimes the lives of their family, to save a fellow human being.
