A moving ceremony took place in Palma yesterday to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day.
On the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, members of various religious denominations together with top politicians joined in a simple but highly poignant ceremony.
The impressive red-flocked and mirrored reception room of Palma’s Parliament building was packed with over a hundred Majorcan residents eager to show their respects on this special Anniversary.
“Following the terrible events recently in Paris, I felt it especially important to attend this year and show our support” said Miguel Hieromonje of the Serbian Orthodox Church. “I hope soon to attend one of the services in the synagogue.”
After a short film Margalida Duran I Cladera, Balearic parliamentary speaker, made a short emotional speech followed by President of the Jewish Community Abraham Barchilon, both voicing that the terrible events that took place in Nazi Germany in the 1940’s should never be forgotten.
