printable version

People of different religions, ages and cultures together in Barcelona for a pilgrimage of memory, so as not to forget the deportation of Jews during the Nazi occupation. Candles and torches lit as a sign of the willingness to remain vigilant against racism.

On 10 December, they remembered the 75th anniversary of the “Crystal Night”, when in Germany and Austria more than 90 people were killed in one night and numerous places of worship and commercial activities of Jewish citizens were desecrated, looted and even destroyed.

 

The march "There is no future without memory", organised by the Community of Sant'Egidio in Barcelona, walked the streets of the historic centre to the old Jewish neighbourhood, where many Jews were murdered in 1391.

At the end of the march, the testimony of Jaume Vandor, Shoah survivor, who told about the progression from discrimination to the "final solution".

Writer Vicenç Villatoro, who also participated, invited everyone not to be fooled by the "banality of evil" and to cut the roots of hatred and discrimination.
