International Holocaust Remembrance Week in Moldova 2023

The Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova (JCM), as a member of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), is taking part in WJC and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)’s annual #WeRemember campaign for International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January.

The campaign began on 23 January and runs through International Holocaust Remembrance Week. It promotes the importance and awareness of Holocaust education. With the theme, “Learn from the past, protect the future,” the 2023 #WeRemember campaign encourages participants around the world to take pictures of themselves holding a sign with the words “We Remember,” and then post their pictures to social media using the hashtag #WeRemember, to spread the message that “never again” must mean never again. In Moldova, Ambassadors from foreign missions and representatives of NGOs and civil society have taken part in the campaign by writing a short message about the importance of International Holocaust Memorial Day and posting a picture of themselves.


According to the findings of the International Commission on the Holocaust chaired by Elie Wiesel, around 300,000 Jews and several thousand Roma, as well as other groups, were murdered in the Holocaust in Moldova. The Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova prepared a poster for the #WeRemember campaign which uses an image from the Holocaust in Moldova in 1941. The poster is now on display in bus stops and stations across Moldova, as well as on social media of the Jewish Community of Moldova and its national partners.

Additional resources on how to support the #WeRemember campaign and honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust are available at . The site links to facts about the Holocaust, as well as Holocaust survivor testimonies, on, a comprehensive online resource developed by the WJC in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
