Conference interpreter during the international day of remembrance of Holocaust victims

Every year around 27 January, UNESCO pays tribute to the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and reaffirms its commitment to combat anti-Semitism, racism and all other forms of intolerance that may lead to acts of violence against certain groups of people.

The 27th of January commemorates the liberation in 1945 by Soviet troops of the Nazi concentration and extermination camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. This date was officially proclaimed International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of the Holocaust in November 2005.

For this reason, Silvia Palá Intérpretes coordinated the interpretation services for the day organised by the University of Barcelona, during a dialogue between art curator Vered Glickman, director of the Hebrew Language Centre of the Israelite Cultural Institute of Budapest, followed by a dialogue with urban artist Roc Blackblock.
