Honorary Consul of the Republic of Albania in Kharkiv Shahin Omarov took part in the Memory Ceremony dedicated to the Day of Holocaust and Heroism of European Jewry


Memorial ceremony was held at the Memorial complex "Drobitsky Yar". The participants laid flowers and honored the memory of the victims with a minute of silence. This is a tribute to the memory of the six million victims of Nazism, whose lives were carried out by the Second World War, and the worship of the heroism of the Jews who rebelled in the Warsaw Ghetto on April 19, 1943.

The ceremony was attended by the heads of the Kharkiv City Council and the Kharkov Regional State Administration, representatives of the Embassy of the State of Israel, the Israeli Cultural Center, Jewish public associations, representatives of the Kharkov diplomatic corps, clergy, students and youth.

The uprising in the Warsaw ghetto became a symbol of Jewish resistance. For five weeks the defenders of the ghetto provided heroic resistance to the superior forces of the German military, who, with artillery and armored vehicles, began systematic destruction of the ghetto and the destruction of its inhabitants.

The Day of Memory of the Catastrophe and Heroism of European Jewry begins at sunset and ends the next day with the appearance of the stars. On this day, ceremonies and rallies of memory are held, the state flag is lowered to half the flagpole, the television and radio channels broadcast only broadcasts about the Jews of Europe during the Second World War: about the heroism displayed, about the deceased, about their heritage.
