The National Holocaust Commemoration will take place this year with a small group of attendees on Sunday, January 31 at 11:30 am at the Mirror Memorial “Never again Auschwitz” in the Wertheim Park in Amsterdam. The NOS will broadcast the commemoration live on television at 11:00 am.
Normally everyone is welcome to attend the memorial, but because of Corona, the memorial cannot take place in the way we are used to. There is no silent march and only a limited group of people may be present in the park. Only invitees with an invitation letter are admitted, and the park closes during the commemoration.
The Auschwitz Committee is saddened that this year’s commemoration should be held in this way. Hopefully, the public will be able to attend in large numbers next year at the unveiling of the National Holocaust Names Memorial and at the National Holocaust Remembrance in 2022.
