French Ambassador to Armenia takes part in commemorative events  dedicated to  International Holocaust Remembrance Day

ArmInfo. French Ambassador to Armenia Jonathan Lacote took part in commemorative events dedicated to the International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

It should be noted that every year on this day, the Jewish community  of Armenia pays tribute to the memory of the innocent victims of the  Holocaust. This year was no exception, and today the ceremony of  laying flowers and wreaths at the memorial to the victims of the  Holocaust and the Armenian Genocide, which is installed on the  Circular Park at the intersection of Moskovyan-Teryan streets.

"The square at the corner of the intersection, a little snow, stele  in Hebrew and Armenian, near which about thirty people gathered. I'm  very moved by the fact that today in Yerevan I took part in  commemorative events dedicated to the International Holocaust  Remembrance Day. Hoping that in the future the event, organized by  the small Jewish community of Armenia, will gather a large audience  in a country where, as we know more than anywhere else, we know the  importance of a duty of memory, "Lacote wrote on Facebook, while  inviting him to read the speech of the French President Emmanuel  Macron, who the latter delivered during the Fifth World Holocaust  Remembrance Forum, which took place yesterday in Jerusalem.

It should be noted that annually on January 27 the International  Holocaust Remembrance Day is celebrated, which is the first world day  of Holocaust remembrance. The day was approved by the UN General  Assembly on November 1, 2005 in resolution 60/7. The UN General  Assembly called on Member States to develop and implement educational  programs so that the lessons of the Holocaust are forever remembered  and help prevent future acts of genocide.

In many countries of the world there are memorials and museums  dedicated to the memory of the victims of the genocide, and on this  day or in anticipation of this day mourning ceremonies and various  commemorative events and actions are held at these memorials.
