Commemoration Event Marks 79 Years Since Liberation of Auschwitz

Today, victims of the Holocaust were solemnly remembered during a commemoration rally attended by citizens, officials, and the head of state, President Maia Sandu. The gathering observed a minute of silence in honor of the over six million Jews who lost their lives during one of history’s darkest chapters.

This year marks the 79th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland. The event, which took place in the capital, saw a diverse group of attendees coming together to pay their respects and reflect on the profound impact of the Holocaust. President Maia Sandu, addressing the crowd, emphasized the importance of collective efforts globally to prevent the recurrence of hatred, bigotry, and prejudice.


“For our country, the tragedy of the Jewish people, the Roma, and all others who suffered on this land during the Holocaust will forever be a deep wound. A collective effort worldwide is needed to ensure that hatred, bigotry, and prejudice no longer take root, as they are the sources of evil that transform into monstrous crimes,” President Sandu stated in her message during the commemoration rally.

As the world remembers the horrors of the Holocaust and the liberation of Auschwitz, the event serves as a poignant reminder of the need for continued awareness, education, and unity against forces that threaten the principles of humanity. The memory of the victims remains a call to action to build a world where such atrocities are never repeated.
